Greeks impatient over debt deal
22 May 2015 18:06
Greeks have expressed growing impatience and anxiousness over endless negotiations, following a meeting of Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras and the leaders of France and Germany in Riga.
-
The Greek government said it aims to reach a deal in the next 10 days, but four months have already passed without any agreement despite optimism on the Greek side.
-
A poll published on Monday shows that Greeks have begun to doubt the government's stance in negotiations.
-
The University of Macedonia survey carried out between 13-15 May found that 35% of Greeks thought the government stance was right, a large drop from 72% in February.
-
And 41% of Greeks believe the government strategy “is not stable and is therefore sometimes right and sometimes wrong”.
-
As many as 61% believe the government should water down its pre-election pledges given the circumstances, the poll said, compared with 35% who want them seen through.
