Most Greeks want bailout renegotiation

Nearly three-quarters of Greeks say the country?s new coalition government led by Antonis Samaras must insist on a renegotiation of the terms of Greece?s international loan agreement, a poll by MRB for Real News newspaper showed.

Of those surveyed, 73.9 percent said the coalition should insist on discussing the terms even if such talks lead to the danger of Greece leaving the euro area, according to an excerpt of the poll published on Saturday on the web site of Athens-based Real News.

That compared with 15.5 percent who said the government should accept the current terms of Greece?s bailout, according to the newspaper.
