PollAccording to a new poll made by Rass for the Typos Tis Kyriakis newspaper, the vast majority of respondents, corresponding to 81.9%,  believe that the prosecution against the leader and the top officials of the Neo-Nazi Golden Dawn, after the murder of Pavlos Fyssas, is justified. In parallel, according to the poll’s findings, ND is ahead of SYRIZA, by 1.3 percentage points.
