An opinion poll published on Monday gives SYRIZA a two percentage point lead over New Democracy.

The Pulse RC survey for Efimerida ton Syntakton newspaper puts SYRIZA on 21 percent, against 19 percent for New Democracy.

Golden Dawn has 13 percent, followed by PASOK on 6.5, the Communist Party on 5.5, Independent Greeks on 4 and Democratic Left on 3 percent.

The poll comes just over a week after SYRIZA held its founding congress, aimed at uniting the party behind a centralized decision making process.
