ATHENS, April 27
ATHENS, April 27 (Reuters) - A majority of Greeks disapproves of their government's decision to ask for financial aid from European Union and the International Monetary Fund, the first poll taken since the request showed on Tuesday.
Of 1,400 people surveyed, 60.9 percent said they were against the government's decision on Friday to ask for the aid package, the poll, by agency Greek Public Opinion for Mega TV, showed.
The survey showed 70.2 percent did not agree with the IMF's involvement in the deal, which offers Greece 45 billion euros in emergency loans to help it avoid defaulting on its 300 billion euro debt pile. (Reporting by Angeliki Koutantou; editing by Michael Winfrey)
