ATHENS - Two Greek polls showed stronger support for a proposed national unity government to rule for several months, rather than for early snap elections, Greek newspapers said on Saturday.

One poll commissioned by Proto Thema newspaper showed 52 percent of the public are in favor of the plan being put forward by Prime Minister George Papandreou, while 36 percent want snap elections as proposed by the conservative opposition.

Another poll commissioned by Ethnos newspaper puts support for the rival ideas at 45 percent and 41.7 percent respectively.
