  • [01] ND leader on Lesvos

    ANA-MPA/Main opposition New Democracy (ND) leader Antonis Samaras addressed supporters on the eastern Aegean island of Lesvos on Thursday evening, saying that the current economic crisis was the crisis of Greece's political system and of the economic model.

    He further admitted that his party did not succeed, during its 2004-2009 governance, in contrilling the deficits in most public utility companies.

    Commenting on ruling PASOK's policies, Samaras said that when it came into office it swelled the deficit it iherited while refusing to take immediate measures.

    The Memorandum which Greece signed last May with the European Commission, European Central Bank (ECB) and International Monetary Fund (IMF) gave to the country temporary liquidity but it does not provide an exit from the crisis, Samaras also said, adding that no more sacrifices are now needed nor extra restricting measures.ANA-MPa

    The main opposition leader also called for the implementation of measures that woud serve growth.

    Referring to Greek national issues, Samaras also accused the ruling PASOK of resorting to compromises.
