  • [01] PM Karamanlis tells Kilkis gathering gov't is continuing its plan with confidence

  • [01] PM Karamanlis tells Kilkis gathering gov't is continuing its plan with confidence

    Prime Minister Costas Karamanlis gave a speech at a gathering at the indoor stadium of Kilkis prefecture in central Macedonia on Friday night, giving emphasis to the government's policy for regional development, while accusing the main opposition Panhellenic Socialist Movement (PASOK) that it "speaks about security but plans insecurity, speaks about social sensitivity and is processing ideas for taxation raids."

    Karamanlis referred to the political opposition between the government and PASOK, noting:"We firmly insist on a calm and responsible political dialogue. We are not playing at the table of polarisation. We will not do a favour to the stage directors and the protagonists of artificial tension. Those who think that reactions are spunges that wipe out their responsibilities, are working in vein. Those who believe that distortion rids them of the obligation to take clear-cut positions are working in vein. The Greek people are fully aware that popularism is a confession of political weakness."

    Continuing, the prime minister said:"They are very much aware that the ideas for uninsured labour, the statements by PASOK cadres for a Scandinavian model, which imposes harsh taxation, the positions expressed by advisers of the PASOK leader for the social insurance system, the minced words and the continuous backtracks, mean political confusion, mean uncertainty, mean hidden plans."

    The prime minister said that the government will keep its promisews "to the full."

    He announced that the government is planning the completion of the taxation reform for gradual reduction from 2007 of the taxation indicators for all people.

    At another point of his speech, Karamanlis referred in detail to the projects which have been carried out and those which are being planned to be made in Kilkis prefecture, central Macenonia and northern Greece in general, noting that "the regions are changing a page, Greece is changing rythms and central Macedonia is claiming new prospects."

    Specifically, regarding the works, he said:"Two-hundred investment proposals have been submitted to the Central Macedonia Region, of which, more than half have been approved. In your prefecture about 25 investment proposals have been approved, and the approval of another equal number are being advanced."
