An Opinion poll survey, commissioned by Eleftheros Typos daily, shows a lead for Evangelos Meimarakis before tomorrow's election for New Democracy president. Kyriakos Mitsotakis comes second.

The current party leader garners 49.8%, followed at a great distance by Mitsotakis with 17.6%. Apostolos Tzitzikostas is a close third with 16.9%, and Adonis Georgiadis comes fourth with 9.5%.

Asked who they think will win, regardless of whom they would vote for, 68.4% of respondents said that it would be Meimarakis. Asked who would be the best prime minister, it was again Meimarakis in the lead with 61.4%. He is considered as the leader who is most capable of turning the party into a more effective opposition (60.8%).

Asked who they think can guarantee the stability and unity of the party, respondents again said it would be Meimarakis (61.7%). Mitsotakis is a distant second with 13.8%, 11.4% went to Tzitzikostas, and 4.6% to Georgiadis.

The poll showed that the majority of respondents (57.6%) believe that the current New Democracy president stands a chance to defeat Tsipras at the next election. Mitsotakis only collects 12.6% on this count, Tzitzikostas - 11.7% and Georgiadis - 5.2%. Six out of ten respondents believe that the current party leader is best re-elected, while 34.1% think that a leadership change is in order.

The main criterion in the choice of a president for voters is the party's unity (42.5%), and the second most important aspect (18.1%) is the restoration of the link with the masses. Third comes the ability to make changes in the party (16.3%) and fourth is the rising to the status of the strongest parliamentary opposition (10.8%).

Those who wish to participate in the elections for a new president of New Democracy can vote from 7:00 a.m. at the 883 polling stations with 1,290 outposts across the country.

The list of polling places is uploaded on New Democracy's website. There will be 44 polling stations in European cities as well. Citizens can vote in each section, regardless of domicile. All voters, who are registered in the electoral lists of the Interior Ministry, will be able to cast their vote.
