The son George a minister in the government of Andreas Papandreou
Shortly before the elections, GRReporter decided to ask its readers who they think is the most detested politician in Greece. Among the large number of those "nominated" by popular anger, we chose the most notorious ones. And here are the results.
The leading figures in this unfaltering list are two representatives of the Papandreou clan: the father Andreas and the son George, whose name is closely associated with the economic and social collapse of Greece in the last two and a half years. Andreas Papandreou, who embodied populism in the early 1980s, is the most detested politician according to the readers of the Greek and English versions of grreporter.info, whereas his son George was ranked first in the Bulgarian version of the website.
On the contrary, while 23% of the Bulgarian readers argue that the most detested politician is the former Prime Minister of New Democracy Constantinos Mitsotakis, this view is shared by only 12% of the Greek and 10% of the English readers.
Fourth in the ranking is the military dictator George Papadopoulos with the highest percentage, voted by 20% in the Greek version, also voted by 18% of the English readers and by 12% of the Bulgarian readers.
Next on the list of the most detested politicians are former King Constantine, the former PASOK Prime Minister Costas Simitis and the former minister – reformist from New Democracy and today’s leader of Drasi, Stefanos Manos. In his case, however, none of the readers of the Greek version of GRReporter indicated him as a detested politician. Nevertheless, yesterday's vote proved the opposite by leaving him out of parliament together with all other common-sense political parties.
Thank you all for your participation and we are looking forward to your answers in our new poll: What will happen in Greece after the elections?
