Greek opinion poll company, Kapa Research, has made a research on behalf of Sunday newspaper To Vima about the Greeks’ stance on the selection of Papademos as our new Prime Minister.
72,9% finds the decision on choosing Papademos a “right” or “probably right” one. Around 20% of Greeks believe it was “wrong” or “probably wrong”.
78% of Greeks find the formation of the new government a “positive” or “rather positive” step while 20% characterizes it “negative” or “rather negative”.
Another aspect of Kapa Research’s/To Vima’s opinion poll is the emotions which were caused to the interviewees on learning a specific event. I found the information extremely amusing.
The formation of the new government under Lucas Papademos caused:Hope 42.2% Calm 17.4 % Concern 8.6% Indifference 8.5% Anger 7.5% Pessimism & fear 5.4% Sadness 1.9%
During the period between the 27th of October agreement (Brussels’ deal) and the days that followed the referendum’s announcement, the emotions felt by Greeks were:Anger 40.9% Concern 19% Pessimism & fear 15.7% Hope 8.9% Sadness 5.9% Calm 3.8%
A 78,6% of Greeks now feels that the new government reassures Greece’s position inside the euro zone while a 9.8% believes the opposite.
Finally, 63.4% of the interviewees states that a national unity government was a better idea than heading immediately to elections. The opposite was supported by 34.4% of those asked.
