  • [01] Arta-Karamanlis-Rally

    01/04/2000 20:43:33

    Addressing an election rally in Arta, western Greece, on Saturday, main opposition New Democracy (ND) party leader Costas Karamanlis accused the ruling PASOK government of attempting to distort his party's image and policies and create "artificial tension".

    The ND leader insisted that his party belonged to the "middle" political spectrum, "a genuine expression of liberalism and social solidarity."

    He pledged that if the ND won the April 9 general elections, it would confront the problem of unemployment, which is of concern to the region of Epirus.

    He said that over the past four years his government had achieved its ambitious objectives and had undertaken major projects.

    Simitis underlined that his government had achieved the country's economic growth and would continue to do so. "The growth rate in Greece is 3.5 per cent and in the coming years it will be around 4 per cent. We are among the first in Europe. That is what we achieved through our policy," Simitis said, expressing certainty that PASOK would win the April 9 general elections.
