  • [01] PASOK leader reiterates attack against gov't

    Main opposition Panhellenic Socialist Movement (PASOK) leader George Papandreou on Wednesday evening launched a stinging attack against the government during a speech he gave at an open political rally in Piraeus' district of Nikea, ahead of this Sunday's local government elections.

    Papandreou said that "the country does not deserve the course it has taken," adding that "the Karamanlis government trembles from the indignation of the Greek people over the lies, hypocricy, the distain of Greece, and a government which has no self-respect."

    The PASOK leader said that "the government is closing its cycle," while in another point of his speech and in reply to the slogan "down with the junta of (Prime Minister Costas) Karamanlis," he said that "it is not a junta, but it betrayed the democratic mandate of the Greek people and this is why in the (next) general elections the people will ask of PASOK to undertake the country's helm."

    Papandreou accused Prime Minister Costas Karamanlis that "he is hiding from the problems and is hiding the truth" and that "the (ruling) New Democracy (ND) cannot take the country forward because it has been proven that it does not serve Greece, it simply serves its own people."

    Referring to the crisis in the education sector, Papandreou said that "the ND's policy cannot deal with the problem of education."

    The PASOK leader accused the prime minister of an "irresponsible stance" in the handling of the country's economic matters and spoke of an "'alchemy' with the increase of the Gross Domestic Product (GDP) which places the country in danger of losing enormous sums from the Community Support Framework (CSF), but also of paying retroactively many billions of Euros."
