Greeks most pessimistic in EU about Union’s future

Greeks are the most pessimistic about the future of the European Union and among those who feel their voices are heard least among the citizens of the 28-member block.

A Eurobarometer poll published on Friday indicated that only 29 percent of Greeks are optimistic about the bloc’s future, against an EU average of 51 percent.

Just 13 percent of Greeks said they felt that their voices count in the Union.

Cyprus came last with 11 percent and the EU average was 29 percent.

Nevertheless, 62 percent of Greeks remain in favor of the monetary union, compared to an EU average of 52 percent that back the euro.
