  • [01] PASOK leader says 'no early elections'

  • [01] PASOK leader says 'no early elections'

    ANA-MPA -- "There are no scenarios for early elections," PASOK party president Evangelos Venizelos told reporters in Thessaloniki, northern Greece, following the end of an anti-racism event organised by the Andreas Papandreou Institute of Strategic and Development Studies (ISTAME) and the Thessaloniki Municipality. He was responding to a question regarding scenarios for early elections in the wake of coalition government disagreement on the anti-racism bill.

    Venizelos, whose party is a junior partner in the coalition government, added that "the country must finally exit the crisis, become stable and safe within a Europe which is always in a crisis – we should not forget that."

    The PASOK president called on all political parties to vote for the anti-racism bill, stressing "we will observe parliamentary procedures and each party must take responsibility. If the opposition is entrenched behind a supposed anti-memorandum stance, this actually provides alibi and immunity to the [extreme-right] Golden Dawn (Chryssi Avgi) party.
