The Greek people appear to have a negative impression regarding the International Monetary Fund and its role, based on a survey carried out by Palmos Analysis and published by the Efimerida ton Syntakton.
The survey was carried out in light of the controversial Thomsen-Velculescu talks that were publicized by WikiLeaks and found that 63% of respondents believe that the IMF should leave the Greek bailout program.
Furthermore, 79% believe that the IMF is having a negative impact on Greece and 78% believe that the Fund is blackmailing the Greek government into accepting even harsher austerity measures.
The survey also shows that 77% of respondents argue that the Greek government must not accept any measures beyond what was included in the agreement that was reached in the summer of 2015.
Finally and in relation to the WikiLeaks themselves, 44% of respondents underlined that the content of the leaks is more important than who carried out tapping of the Thomsen-Velculescu talks.
