Opinion Poll Company Believes Next Greek Govt Could Include Three Parties

greece_referendum_voteAt least three parties will be needed to form a new Greek government, said the managing director of Greek polling company Alco, Costas Panagopoulos, in an interview to the Athens-Macedonian News Agency on Wednesday.
“A government can be formed by the two top parties, but if this has been ruled out due to political reasons, then three parties will probably be needed,” he stated.
Asked on the main feature of the upcoming elections, he said that “it is the society’s effort to redefine its relationship with politics and parties in an environment that is very different from that of January as far as emotions, everyday life and the political parties themselves, most of which are different; SYRIZA, Independent Greeks, New Democracy, PASOK are different parties. Either for reasons related to politics or for reasons related to persons, while there is also a new party, the Popular Unity. In this very different environment, a large part of the electorate has not yet decided upon its options.”
Panagopoulos sees the first party around 30% and a small difference between the first and second party. “Because the number of undecided is rather high, I think we should rather wait. My estimate is, however, that we will be near the June 2012 levels, 29.5% – 26.0%,” he said.
He also expressed hope that the government will have the possibility to improve some parts of the agreement through equivalent measures. “Certainly, each government will play a significant role in these changes. It is clear that the society is so tired, so pressed, so disappointed from the constant deterioration of living standards and that is why I consider that the new government’s first priority would be to improve these negative conditions.”
