    Athens, 07/11/1999 (MPA) The ruling PASOK party and the country's main opposition of New Democracy raised the tones once again yesterday with accusations hurled back and forth between officials from both camps.

    N.D. leader Costas Karamanlis stated that the Simitis-led government is hooked on power and will resort to anything in order to maintain its position. Moreover, Mr. Karamanlis reiterated his claims of government-led corruption and illegal hires.

    Government spokesperson Dimitris Reppas responded that the main opposition party has discovered a "vein of mudslinging" and thus tries to cover his party's emptiness. He challenged Mr. Karamanlis to resort to justice in concern with his claims of corruption.
