New Democracy, Syriza Tied in Greek Race for First, Poll Says

A Greek opinion poll showed the Syriza party, which is opposed to implementing Greece’s international financial rescue, in a dead heat with pro-bailout party New Democracy ahead of general elections to be held on June 17.

Syriza’s support stood at 27.2 percent and New Democracy at 27 percent, according to the poll of 1,203 people by Metron Analysis, broadcast on Athens-based Antenna TV today. Both parties have built on their support since the inconclusive May 6 elections, according to the poll. Socialist Pasok also improved, getting 14.8 percent of the vote.
