Gap between SYRIZA and New Democracy closing, says poll

A new opinion poll by Kapa Research shows that the gap between SYRIZA and New Democracy is closing.

Published in Sunday’s To Vima newspaper, the survey puts support for SYRIZA at 25.5 percent, followed by 22.7 percent for New Democracy.

This means that the difference between the two parties has narrowed from 3.6 percent to 2.8 percent over the last month.

The poll also shows PASOK in third on 6.7 percent and that the majority of Greeks would prefer snap elections to be avoided.

According to Kapa Research, 57.8 percent of voters would like the current parliament to elect a new president of the republic.
