A majority of Greeks reject an economic recovery plan imposed in return for EU-IMF loans and would prefer a coalition government to emerge from upcoming elections, opinion polls showed on Saturday.
A poll by the MRB company showed that 26.2 percent of respondents intend to vote for a party opposed to the unpopular EU-IMF rescue in the May 6 ballot.
In response to another question, 66 percent said Greece should stay in the eurozone but adopt an alternative recovery plan, while 13.2 percent said the country should drop the euro altogether.
Greece in 2010 appealed to the European Union and the International Monetary Fund for loans to avert bankruptcy and was forced to put its economy in order.
In order to tackle runaway state deficits, it adopted tough austerity policies bringing layoffs, pay cuts and tax hikes.
There are now over a million unemployed according to official figures -- more than a fifth of the workforce -- and the country is sinking deeper into recession.
