  • [01] PM Papandreou at SI's council meeting

  • [01] PM Papandreou at SI's council meeting

    Prime Minister, ruling PASOK party leader and Socialist International (SI) President George Papandreou, speaking on Tuesday after the two-day sessions of the SI's Council in the Dominican Republic, stressed that the Socialist International's assessment is that the crisis currently being experienced by mankind is not a simple economic crisis, it is also an ecological and energy crisis, even one of democratic institutions.

    Papandreou said that "for these reasons it is not enough for one to wait passively until the present crisis is over and for things to return to their previous state." He added that reforms and big changes must be promoted for a different course in global developments.

    He further pointed out that the Socialist International "is a pioneer in promoting these changes in the economy and democratic institutions, both at local and international level. A substantive redistribution of income on the planet must be supported and one must proceed with a different growth model and a new relation between humanity and the environment."

    In all these matters, he added, "the Socialist International is in the front line and what it is doing in Latin America today, it will do in Copenhagen tomorrow and later at the G20 summit, intervening in economic crisis issues."

    Referring to Greece, Papandreou stressed that despite its problems it "can play a leading role today in the consolidation of democratic conceptions and democratic institutions, promoting the democratic governance conception, based on its values and traditions to enable the average family and weak citizens to be helped, and also implement a different growth model based on its comparative advantages.
