  • [01] PM's press office denies any statement vis-a-vis election in neighbouring Albania

  • [01] PM's press office denies any statement vis-a-vis election in neighbouring Albania

    Prime Minister Costas Karamanlis' press office on Sunday flatly dismissed earlier same-day reports claiming that the Greek premier expressed his satisfaction over the outcome of election results in neighbouring Albania.

    The press office also stressed that the Greek prime minister, who earlier on Sunday was in the Evros border prefecture to inaugurate a project to build a natural gas pipeline linking Greece and Turkey, made no comments whatsoever regarding parliamentary elections in the west Balkan country.

    According to an ANA dispatch from Tirana early Sunday afternoon, the main opposition Democratic Party reportedly claimed that the Greek PM made such a statement in its favor, an assertion quickly disputed by the rival Socialist Party.

    In a related development, voting in predominately ethnic Greek areas of southern Albania proceeded more-or-less smoothly, according to reports, during Sunday's general parliamentary elections here.

    The total number of ethnic Greeks that returned to the country from neighbouring Greece in order to exercise their voting rights was estimated at roughly 7,000.
