  • [01] PASOK leader chairs party meeting

  • [01] PASOK leader chairs party meeting

    Main opposition PASOK leader George Papandreou on Thursday chaired a meeting of the party‚s Political Coordinating Committee and said that "the political system is going through a crisis and PASOK is obliged to expose the New Democracy (ND) government, which, through corruption, partner mentality, anti-popular policies and the country‚s anti-development course, has only one target, to serve partners and selfish interests, provoking the Greek people."

    Papandreou also said that "every crisis also constitutes an opportunity and it is a great obligation of PASOK to bring back the credibility of the political system." He added that "we have the political will to achieve it and to change the political system."

    He also said that "we will struggle along with the people, also helping in the organization of the popular movement against the unacceptable government policies."

    Concluding, the PASOK leader referred to Prime Minister Costas Karamanlis‚ pending visit to Turkey, stressing that "there is no substantial preparation of it," adding that "the aim of this trip is not comprehensible."

    On his part, PASOK spokesman Yiannis Ragoussis launched a two-pronged attack against the prime minister "and all those who probably are planning scenarios for a rift in PASOK."

    He called on the prime minister "to put an end to every further effort to cover up the Zachopoulos scandal."

    Ragoussis also stressed that "for PASOK, there is only one opponent, the government‚s anti-popular policies."

    He further referred to various scenarios of an alleged rift in PASOK, stressing that "it is a shame, at a time when the government is being tried, when its hypocrisy on political ethics is revealed, when its policies are failing, at a time when the Movement‚s opposition policy is unfolded, certain people are attempting to create internal problems in PASOK."
