The game ended in a 2-2 tie, with AEK leaving two precious points on the pitch and a share of the first divisions penthouse. AEK hosts La Coruna in Athens on Wednesday for Group C Champions League play.

    Paniliakos-Aris Thessaloniki, 0-0

    Halkidona Piraeus-Xanthi, 2-0

    [04] Keynote Karamanlis address outlines ND policies, directions

    14/09/2003 20:26:34

    Main opposition New Democracy (ND) leader Costas Karamanlis on Saturday stressed that a 30-year cycle in Greece is coming to an end, with the upcoming period characterised by new collective and individual demands for more prosperity.

    Karamanlis spoke during the last weekend of the Thessaloniki International Fair (TIF) in the eponymous northern Greece port city, exactly one week after the customary state-of-the-nation speech by the prime minister inaugurating the largest trade exhibition in Greece.

    Less than a year before the next general elections in the Greece, the main opposition leader outlined his partys economic and social targets, while repeatedly stressing that ?new governance? is needed in practically every aspects of the countrys daily life a political blueprint he termed as ?Prospect 2010?.

    Speaking to a crowd that included most of the areas top political, business and labour leaders, Karamanlis said NDs goal is for development and prosperity everywhere in the country.

    In a reply from the same podium to remarks by PM Costas Simitis a week earlier, who cited an upcoming four-year period of ?high risk?, Karamanlis first focused on next years Olympic Games in Athens, saying that ?we believe that despite the delays and skyrocketing costs, we can host the best Games ever.?

    As far as national issues are concerned, the ND leader reiterated his partys positions over defence and foreign policy, saying the goal is to reduce defence spending in favour of social funding and a more robust social state.

    ?We Greeks strive for peace and cooperation with our neighbours, and we demand respect for International Law."
