    With just one week to go before the April 9 general elections, main opposition leader Costas Karamanlis continued his election campaign on Sunday morning and afternoon with a tour of the islands of Samos and Ikaria in the eastern Aegean, where he reiterated that his party represented "the calm force of the middle" political spectrum and "the genuine expression of liberalism and social solidarity."

    [05] Simitis-Interview-ELEFTHEROTYPIA

    02/04/2000 15:56:29

    In an interview with the Sunday edition of the "Eleftherotypia" newspaper, ruling PASOK leader and Prime Minister Costas Simitis said that his aim was for his party to achieve as great a margin as possible from the main opposition New Democracy (ND) party in the April 9 general elections so as to have a strong majority in parliament and go ahead with reforms and modernisation plans.

    The prime minister said he does not share the view that a drop in the Athens Stock Exchange could bring about defeat for PASOK. He stressed that "on April 9 the Greeks will punish all those who are pleased when the general index falls and are disappointed when it rises. The New Democracy's political opportunism at the Stock Exchange has an April 9 expiry date."
