  • [01] PM briefed by ruling ND party sec't

    Prime Minister Costas Karamanlis on Wednesday met with ruling New Democracy party Secretary Lefteris Zagoritis, with the latter telling reporters afterwards that talks focused on various issues.

    The ND secretary dismissed a press question on whether the government and the party are concerned over possible mobilizations during the Thessaloniki International Trade Fair next month, while he stressed that the prime minister will mostly outline economic policies benefitting lower-income households and and pensioners.

    Regarding October's municipal and prefectural elections, Zagoritis said he is satisfied with the course of ND-backed candidates so far, stressing that, in general, there are no problems, while in referring to likely "rebel" ND candidates, he said they "always existed, exist and will continue to exist".

    Finally, Zagoritis declined to comment on the expulsion of Yiannos Papantoniou from main opposition PASOK's Parliamentary group, saying that it is an internal party matter. However, he did charge that PASOK as a whole lacks proposals, positions, policy and framework.
