  • [01] 'Greece's course in Europe... must remain undisturbed,' President says, receiving ND leader

    ANA-MPA -- The Greek people will once again prove that in the most crucial hour they display the "greatest maturity and determination," when they are called to cast their vote next Sunday, President of the Hellenic Republic Prokopis Pavlopoulos said on Sunday, while receiving main opposition New Democracy leader Antonis Samaras. "The country's course in Europe and the Eurozone must remain undisturbed. This cannot happen without everyone's joint efforts, which is now more necessary than ever," he said, adding that the Greek people were "well aware what is at stake." Samaras repeated that the defence of the country's place in Europe is a "red line" for his party and "a position that really supports the very existence of Greece." The ND leader said he was aware that Pavlopoulos agrees with this position, "but I have an obligation to tell you that at this time the defence of this national position is become more and more difficult and the 'red line' is in immediate danger. This was the reason why I asked to see you today in order to discuss this."

    Earlier, Parliament President Zoi Konstantopoulou had delivered Parliament's decision to hold a referendum on the creditors' terms for financial assistance to Greece to President of the Hellenic Republic Prokopis Pavlopoulos at dawn on Sunday morning. Accepting Parliament's ruling, Pavlopoulos assured her that he will fully exercise his duties as laid out in the Constitution, especially with respect to article 44 on holding a referendum for a crucial national issue. "It was ancient Greece that was the birthplace of direct democracy," he noted. Konstantopoulou said she felt honoured to be the first Parliament president since the restoration of democracy in the country to sign a decision for holding a referendum, which she called a "supreme democratic process."
