chanel j12 watch A wide majority of Greek citizens reaching up to 48.6 percent, reject the pension reform bill to be voted on July 8 by the Greek parliament, according to the latest opinion poll published on a Sunday newspaper.

The poll released on Sunday's "Vima" newspaper shows that 29.6 percent of Greeks requested the immediate withdrawal of the bill and a further 19 percent called it catastrophic.

Some 35.2 percent of the people participating in the poll deemed the reform necessary but unfair.

If general elections were held now, PASOK would get a 23.4 percent of votes, center Right New Democracy party would receive a 15.6 percent and smaller parties such as the Communist Party of Greece would get their usual percentages lower than seven percent.

Four out of ten people asked replied "I do not know who I would vote for."
