One in two Greeks says name solution is required: survey


A little less than half of respondents (48.3%) agree that the Greek government should work towards a solution in the name issue, show results of the public opinion survey by agency Rass for the Greek TV station Action24, MIA reports from Athens.

Asked if they agree with the opinion that the conditions for settlement of the name issue are currently favorable and the government should work towards its solution, 43.8 percent of respondents say yes, 4.5 percent "probably agree", 40.7 percent do not agree, 3.2 probably do not agree, while 7.8 percent failed to answer.

The survey's detailed analysis shows that the majority of those supporting a solution now are women (51.9%) at the age between 17-34 (60.1%), who voted for SYRIZA at the last elections (55.2%) and residing in Greece's south (58.9%).

On the other hand, the majority of those saying there are no conditions for a solution are at the age between 35-44 (50.3%), mostly men (50.6%), voted for New Democracy at the last elections (59.3%) living in northern Greece (48.3%).

The telephone survey was carried out between May 29-31 at a sample of 1,002 respondents.
