Kyriakos Mitsotakis, initially considered the outsider in the race for the leadership post was elected leader of New Democracy. In this connection we asked if he would be able to change the political landscape of Greece. The poll is over and traditionally its results are very interesting.

The largest group of readers of GRReporter's Bulgarian page respond that it does not matter whether Tsipras or Mitsotakis will be Prime Minister, the situation in Greece will remain unchanged. Our readers are in the grip of political apathy and have no hope for change. Of course, these attitudes are not surprising, they only confirm the results of the poll on our readers’ expectations for 2016. The second most popular answer is connected with the view that after one year of radical left governing, the Greeks will want to end this adventure and will support Mitsotakis. This option has 29% of the votes in the poll. 18% of readers of this language page are convinced that the new leader of New Democracy will succeed in changing the political status quo, supporting this option with the polls that indicate the lead of the centre-right party. Only 8% are of the opinion that Mitsotakis is part of the old political system and therefore the Greeks will again support Tsipras.

English-language readers once again have preferred to respond that it does not matter whether Tsipras or Mitsotakis will be Prime Minister and will govern the country, the situation in Greece will not change. This option is the preference of 41% of respondents. Readers here are slightly more optimistic as the second most popular option is that the change is yet to come, which is also supported by opinion polls. 19% of readers believe that after one year of radical left governing, the Greeks will prefer a change and will support Mitsotakis. 17% are of the opposite opinion and perceive the leader of New Democracy as a representative of the old political system, believing that the Greeks will again support Tsipras.

The greatest political apathy is among the Greek readers of our site, as 65% of them see no political alternative to justify their expectations. For them it does not matter whether the helm of the country will be in the hands of Tsipras or Mitsotakis, as this will lead to no real change in the situation. 24% are of the opposite view and expect the political landscape to change, referring to the data of polling agencies. 12% are of the opinion that the governing of the radical left is sufficient motivation for voters to want a change and that the Greeks will end this adventure by supporting Mitsotakis. No reader has voted for the option that Mitsotakis is part of the old political system and therefore the Greeks will again support the current Prime Minister in the next election race.

Our latest poll is dedicated to the farmers' protests, asking you, Do the Greek farmers have the right to block highways and border crossings?. Do not forget to justify your vote in the comments section below the poll.
