  • [01] SYRIZA: 'Samaras policy nothing to do with new Greece'

    ANA-MPA -- Main opposition Radical Left Coalition (SYRIZA) on Sunday commented on Prime Minister Antonis Samaras' speech in the event marking the 40th anniversary of New Democracy party, noting that "when someone sees the disaster the country has experienced as a prescription for success that has to continue, he has either lost contact with reality or he is saying that as a joke".

    "Something that is old, unsuccessful and antisocial, cannot be presented as being new. The Samaras policy has nothing to do with a new Greece," the SYRIZA announcement added.

    [02] Kouvelis re-elected president of Democratic Left party

    ANA-MPA -- Fotis Kouvelis was re-elected as president of the Democratic Left at the party's congress on Sunday, with 68.34 pct of the vote, receiving 503 out of a total of 745 votes. Rival candidate Dimitris Loukas received a total of 155 votes, or 21.01 pct of votes cast, while 79 delegates or 10.71 pct abstained.

    After the result was announced, Kouvelis said that is returning totally to political life and wants to meet its obligations toward society in order to bring the country out of the crisis with its people 'still standing'. "It is a force of responsibility for change and will strive steadfastly, with its positions and ideas, for solutions to the country's major porblems," he said.

    The results of a vote to elect the party's new Central Committee are expected to be announced late on Sunday night.

    [03] Terror suspect Staboulos remanded in custody

    ANA-MPA -- Suspected member of terror group Revolutionary Struggle Antonis Staboulos, 31, who was arrested last week in Athens' Vyronas district outside a garage known to be used by convicted terrorist Nikos Maziotis, will be remanded in custody following his testimony on Sunday before examining magistrate Eftihis Nikopoulos.

    He is charged with being a member of a terror group, explosion, possession of explosives, theft, forgery, resisting arrest, false testimony and gun possession.

    According to information, the defendant refused to testify until he reads the indictment against him.

    At the time of his arrest on Wednesday night, Staboulos was carrying a rucksack that seemed to give details of a planned terrorist strike on October 4, the founding anniversary of New Democracy party. Evidence associated with the explosion at the Bank of Greece in Athens in April 2014, for which Maziotis has claimed responsibility, was also found.
