  • [01] Papandreou cites anti-corruption campaign

    Main opposition PASOK leader George Papandreou on Wednesday met with several noted personalities involved in the local "Society of Citizens" movement, judicial officers and heads of independent watchdog authorities, where he promised, among others, to be unforgiving with incidents of corruption.

    Additionally, he reiterated his criticism of the government, saying that the current ND government lacks the political will to curb corruption, "but has, in fact, aided it (corruption) with its policies."

    "Our goal is not to merely exchanges views over practical measures that must be taken, but to create a wider consensus on the manner in which to fight corruption in our country," he said, adding that he will guarantee an unremitting campaign against corruption.

    Gov't reaction

    "A few days ago Mr. Papandreou said that he was not beholden to anything from the past. He forgets, however, that decisions by PASOK governments, of which he was a member and never expressed a different opinion, are binding for the Greek people, as they (decisions) left behind massive burdens," alternate government spokesman Evangelos Antonaros said in reply to Papandreou's statements.
