  • [01] PM: Greece is a country of great potential

    The Inner Cabinet chaired by Prime Minister Costas Karamanlis convenes on Tuesday on issues concerning the Interior Ministry at the Maximos Mansion.

    On Monday evening, Karamanlis speaking during the cutting of the New Year's cake of the ruling New Democracy party's Women's Secretariat, said that "we are in constant conflict with corruption and lawlessness."

    The prime minister stressed that "we are frontally opposed to selfish expediencies that harm our Democracy, the reliability of the political system and the dignity of politics."

    Karamanlis began his address by referring to the climate currently prevailing, terming it morbid.

    "Real events have been mixed with rumours, hearsay, exaggerations, generalisations, aphorisms. The major issues on the course of the country have been removed from public dialogue. An effort has been made to replace the real political agenda. Crude attacks have been launched against institutions, particularly against Justice. It is evident that some are making a mistake. A huge mistake. A dangerous mistake," he said.

    Karamanlis also criticised the main opposition PASOK party, saying that despite the steps that have been taken, the country is still carrying the great economic burdens of the past and society is facing deeply-rooted problems.

    "We are well aware of reality. We are aware of the difficulties that the citizens are facing. We have not concealed and we are not concealing the problems that exist. We are not denying the difficulties. We are not beautifying situations," the prime minister said.

    "Greece is not the grey image that some are wanting to impose on it. These are not the images that some are trying to generalise. Greece is a modern and proud country. A country of security, of confidence, of stability, having considerable geopolitical advantages. It is a country of great potential," he added.

    Karamanlis went on to say that the country has taken great steps in past years, clarifying that reforms will be continued in all sectors, stressing that "an end has been put to covering up and tolerance that characterised the past. Bold changes and new measures to consolidate transparency are already being implemented. Checks are being intensified everywhere. All illegal behaviour that harms public interest is revealed and brought before Justice."

    Lastly, the prime minister pointed out that "Greece will not be delivered to stagnation. It will not compromise. It will not return to yesterday.
