Radical left SYRIZA’s leader Alexis Tsipras is the undisputed winner in GRReporter’s poll, which asked the question: "Which political leader do you admire the most?" Tsipras, aged 36, won the admiration of the majority of readers in all three versions of the website. He won 33% of the votes in the Bulgarian version, 29% in the English and 26% in the Greek version of the website.

Similarities, however, stop there. The Bulgarian readers rated New Democracy leader Antonis Samaras second with 31%. However, the readers of the Greek and English versions have different opinions. Only 13% and 11% of them respectively expressed their admiration for the ailing prime minister today.

Quite surprisingly or perhaps not so much, 24% of them preferred the former leader of Drasi Stefanos Manos, who had resigned after the election coalition with ReCreate Greece failed to enter the new Greek parliament. In the Bulgarian version of GRReporter, 7% of readers supported him.

Far-right Golden Dawn’s leader Nikos Mihaloliakos was rated particularly high in the Greek version of the website. Admiration for him was expressed by 26% of readers compared with 14% in the English version and only 5% in the Bulgarian version.

The leader of the former governing party PASOK, Evangelos Venizelos, was rated equally low. 8% of Bulgarian readers supported him and 7% and 10% in the Greek and the English versions respectively.

Democratic Alliance’s leader Dora Bakogiannis, whose activity had been "frozen" due to the pre-election alliance with New Democracy, received the highest number of votes from Bulgarian readers – 14%. She received the lowest number of votes in the Greek version of the website – 2%, whereas 6% of English readers expressed a positive opinion for her.

Panos Kamenos, the leader of the newly formed party Independent Greeks, turned out to be the most unpopular politician. Only 2% of Bulgarian and Greek readers voted in his favour as well as 6% of the readers of the English version.
