New Democracy Lead Over SYRIZA Now 8.4%, Still Holds Strong

September 30, 2022

ATHENS – The major opposition SYRIZA’s constant attacks on New Democracy ahead of the mid-2023 elections isn’t paying off, with a survey showing the Conservatives having an 8.4 percent lead.

That’s up from 8 percent over another poll taken only a week earlier, this one done by the firm Metron Analysis for Mega TV and indicating that Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis’ popularity has grown despite a spyware scandal.

New Democracy had a 29-20.6 percent edge in the findings, showing the party maintaining the same approximate gap for months as he had called off  snap election prospects.

In third is Socialist PASOK-KINAL at 12.2 percent, followed by the sliding KKE Communists at 5.1 percent, the ultra-nationalist Greek Solution at 4.8 percent and last-place radical leftist MeRA25 at 3.4 percent, just above the 3 percent needed to get into Parliament.
