  • [01] Parliament condemns attack on ND Headquarters

    AMNA--The parliamentary parties on Monday condemned an early-morning attack against the New Democracy (ND) Headquarters in Athens, before beginning a debate on an omnibus bill containing several Legislative Acts that are "prior actions" for the disbursement of January's installment of the EU/IMF bailout loan to Greece.

    "New Democracy will continue on its own course, effort and contribution to democracy. No terrorist act can intimidat4e us, and our effort to restore law and order will continue unobstructed," ND parliamentary spokesman MP Makis Voridis said, adding that ND expects similar statements of condemnation of violence and terrorism from the entire political world, so that the unanimity of all the political forces in the condemnation of such phenomena may be shown.

    "We unequivocally condemn these actions, which undermine democracy and the country's course. This is SYRIZA's steadfast position which it adheres to not only in words but also in actions, raising a wall against such phenomena," main opposition SYRIZA parliamentary spokesman Panayiotis Lafazanis said.amna

    "Once again, some sides decided, with armed action, to strike a blow against democracy. We unequivocally condemn the fact that certain sides come tine and again with such actions," PASOK parliamentary spokesman Mihalis Chryssohoidis said, noting that Greece is now the only European country to have such phenomena, which strike a blow at the heart of the country, in other words at investments and social tranquility.amna

    "It is self-evident, and our duty, to condemn any attack, the more so against a parliamentary party," Independent Greeks parliamentary spokesman Terrence Quick said, adding that a continuity of coincidences need to be discussed. Parliament, he said, has a heavy programme beginning with the Villa Amalia affair, the fire-bomb attacks on journalists' homes, the fire-bomb attack on the home of government spokesman Simos Kedikoglou's brother, and today's attack against the ND headquarters.

    Ultra-right Chryssi Avghi (Golden Dawn) parliamentary spokesman Christos Pappas opined that the three-party government "benefits from the bizarre violence of the past few days", adding that his party condemns all forms of violence "because it has known first-hand what violence means, with tens of bomb and murderous attacks against its cadres".amna

    Democratic Left (DIMAR) parliamentary spokesman Nikos Tsoukalis called the recent escalation of violence "an extremely worrisome phenomenon", adding that "a verbal condemnation does not suffice, but rather an integrated plan is needed and it is the duty of all the political forces to resoundingly state their determination to comprise the democratic political arch against this phenomenon".

    The Communist Party of Greece's (KKE) of this attack is self-evident, KKE parliamentary spokesman Thanassis Pafilis said, noting however that "what is happening, objectively, is a disorientation of the people". He added that, especially, the attack on the ND is more complex with regard to both the purpose and the symbolism.
