Greek leftist opposition leads ruling conservatives - polls

Greece's main leftist opposition Syriza party has widened its lead over the conservatives in the ruling coalition, polls showed on Saturday, amid rising speculation that the selection of a new president of state may lead to early elections.

The pick of a new president in early 2015 has muddied Greece’s political scene and could lead to snap polls before the government’s term ends in 2016, given the opposition’s pledge to block any candidate proposed by the government.

…One poll by MRB Hellas for weekly newspaper Realnews found the anti-austerity Syriza party would get 30 percent of the vote if elections were held now, giving it a 4.7 percentage-point lead over Samaras’s New Democracy conservatives.

Syriza had a 2.1 percentage points lead in an MRB poll in July.

…Another survey by pollster ALCO for Proto Thema newspaper showed the radical leftist Syriza leading with 28 percent versus 23.8 percent for Samaras’s New Democracy conservatives.

Problems of research in Greece

Since 2009, research centers and universities have seen their budgets cut by about 30% and 50% respectively. Salaries of scientists and faculty members have been cut by about 30%, leaving a typical lecturer/researcher with only €1,000 to take home each month. The 2014 education budget will reduce funds by another billion. In 2012, against all the odds, the proportion of the country’s research that contributed to the top 1% of most-cited articles was 13th in the world, above Canada, Italy and France.
