  • [01] Karamanlis, Papandreou newspaper interviews

    Prime Minister Costas Karamanlis stressed that he will implement changes in top appointees, as well as in the structure and operation of the government itself, if elected to office again.

    Conversely, main opposition PASOK leader George Papandreou proposed a "social pact" in the labour and business sectors to promote what he called a resurgence of the economy and an exit from the ongoing economic crisis.

    In an interview appearing in the Sunday edition of "Kathimerini", Karamanlis promised to create an autonomous public administration ministry, as well as a new environment ministry along with the merger of the health and social insurances ministries.

    On his part, and in an interview appearing in the weekly "Proto Thema", promised to cut the salaries of so-called "golden boys", a euphemism of late for high-paid and mostly youngish executive in the wider public sector, as well as to tax major property holdings, offshore companies, large inheritances and to abolish numerous state agencies and entities.

    [02] KKE leader addresses supporters

    Communist Party of Greece (KKE) leader Aleka Papariga on Sunday spoke to supporters in the greater Athens district of Galatsi, where she reiterated that the "popular masses" should stop voting for either ruling New Democracy party or main opposition PASOK, the country's two mainstream parties.

    She again added that a vote for the communist party means the creation of a robust obstacle to anti-popular measures she said both other parties have in mind.

    Turning her criticism to other smaller parties, and especially the leftist rival SYRIZA grouping, Papariga said the "smaller parties are merely an impediment to radicalism," stating that the aforementioned party as well as rightist LA.OS and the neophyte Greens-Ecologists grouping support the view of solutions "within the dominant policy in favour of big capital".
