  • [01] PM: PASOK avoiding debate, issues

    Prime Minister Costas Karamanlis, addressing a rally in the SE Attica prefecture port city of Lavrio on Wednesday, again underlined that his New Democracy party will Sunday's general elections, while he accused main opposition PASOK of lacking any plan to tackle the international economic crisis and of "hiding its cards."

    Referring to PASOK leader George Papandreou in particular, the prime minister said "he is avoiding dialogue because he cannot reply (He is avoiding) not only with a second (one-on-one) debate but with all the face-to-face interviews with news anchors on television as well. He has imposed a complete blackout and is hiding in it."

    Focusing on recent PASOK campaign statements about the Burgas-Alexandroupolis pipeline, privatised Olympic Air and the Hellenic Telecoms (OTE), Karamanlis said Papandreou is not saying anything specific and that "he doesn't dare to reveal any of the unpleasant measures that he would take if he came to power."

    Lastly, Karamanlis said the government's plan has a specific content and a clear horizon, while PASOK is not presenting any plan and "behind their half-words and prophecies two things appear: The swelling of debts and an increase in taxes.

    "The decision is yours. Take developments into your hands. No one must be absent on Sunday. Not even one vote must be lost on Sunday," he concluded.
