    [02] Tsohatzopoulos calls for a new political agreement within ruling PASOK

    12/10/2001 20:52:28

    Defence Minister Akis Tsohatzopoulos responded, during his address on Friday at the ruling PASOK 6th congress' second day, to criticism for his political choices and comments and proposed a new political agreement for overcoming, what he called, the disagreements within the party.

    "I have the obligation to make it clear that I will continue to be concerned and that I will listen to the people and that I will criticize, since PASOK and the people need it," Tsohatzopoulos stressed addressing the more than 6,100 electors of the congress.

    The defence minister underlined that the disagreements could be overcome with a new political agreement and especially with a new political formula that would attract once again the popular strata of society which traditionally supported PASOK.

    He went on to laud the achievements of the government, stressing that the pinnacle of the achievement was Greece's entry to the European Monetary Union (EMU) and adding that in the post EMU entry period there is a necessity for a new model of development for Greece, which would combine economic stability with social policy.

    model of economic development.

    He lauded the efforts of Interior Minister Vasso Papandreou to reform the state sector and decentralize it, saying that during the "last period, a climate of disassociation to PASOK was formulated. It is a political mistake to underestimate the seriousness of this distancing. If the protest becomes solid and permanent, it could be transformed into refusal and rejection and they could say to us 'gentlemen we were with you and you paid no heed to us. You should have been more careful'," Tsohatzopoulos said.

    He closed his remarks saying "we do not want a party of the state, but one of society. Not one of state officials, but one of cadres with an opinion. To achieve this, of course, we should strengthen our political functions. A decentralized PASOK is needed".
