Ger­mans against Greek bailout

Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

More than half of Ger­mans are against a third bailout for Greece and the over­whelm­ing ma­jor­ity do not think the Greek author­i­ties will im­ple­ment the re­forms they have com­mit­ted to, ac­cord­ing to a Ger­man sur­vey.

Just a third of some 1,000 re­spon­dents sur­veyed by the Forsa In­sti­tute for Ger­man news­pa­per Han­dels­blatt backed a new res­cue deal for Greece with 57 per­cent say­ing they were op­posed. The poll, pub­lished yesterday, found a to­tal of 84 per­cent did not trust the Greek gov­ern­ment to carry out re­forms.

Ac­cord­ing to the same sur­vey, 47 per­cent of Ger­mans back the tough stance of Ger­man Fi­nance Min­is­ter Wolf­gang Schaeu­ble visa-vis Athens in ne­go­ti­a­tions while 41 per­cent sup­port the softer ap­proach of Ger­man Chan­cel­lor An­gela Merkel.
