Project Description

After the elections of 2009 no funding was available for the Greek candidate study. None of the parties have given to the research team the email addresses of their candidates. PASOK as new government was occupied with many problems, the conservative party (ND) had to elect a new leader and the other three parties of the Parliament have not been responsive to the invitations by the research team.  The project was initially abandoned, but later a member of the research team at the Laboratory of Applied Political Research, Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, using an email harvester (e.g. a computer program used to collect email addresses) was able to collect some of the email addresses and he decided to invite the candidates to participate to a web survey in March of 2010. Since only the two major Greek parties had the email addresses of their candidates and MPs on their websites, the sample consists only from PASOK and ND candidates and MPs. This was the first wave of data collection for the Hellenic (Greek) Candidate Study 2009. This effort resulted in 167 responses. The second wave included face to face interviews and it resulted to 28 completed questionnaires, i.e. the total sample consists of 195 cases.
