Most Greeks want to see terms for an international financial rescue revised, according to an opinion poll conducted weeks before a second general election on June 17.

Nearly eight in 10, or 77 percent, of the 1,600 Greeks surveyed by GPO for Athens-based Mega TV, said the terms of the bailout should be revised. The poll results were broadcast on Mega TV. Most Greeks, or 81 percent, said they wanted to remain in the single currency, the poll showed.

More than half, or 52.4 percent, said they should stay in the euro if they were forced to accept the current austerity measures accompanying the bailout while 44.5 percent said they shouldn’t. The poll showed Greeks divided on whether they would leave the euro area, with 48 percent saying there was a low possibility compared with 45 percent saying the possibility was high.
