  • [01] Gov't spokesman responds to PASOK leader

    Minister of State and Government Spokesman Theodoros Roussopoulos on Saturday commented on an address given by main opposition Panhellenic Socialist Movement (PASOK) leader George Papandreou at an indoor rally of party supporters on the island of Naxos on Friday.

    Roussopoulos said:"Mr. Papandreou reached the point of claiming that under the PASOK governments the country was an international example, a model and a point of reference and that his party brought complete democracy and credibility to the country."

    The Minister of State added:"If he is really unable of being aware of the results of the 20 years of governance by PASOK - in which he participated as a minister - to the country and citizens, he should again study one of the many relevant reports of the European Union and of international organisations. However, it would be well for the PASOK president to know that political surrealism cannot in any case cover the lack of positions and programmes, seriousness and responsibility."

    [02] New Code for Local Gov't

    Interior, Public Administration and Decentralisation Minister Prokopis Pavlopoulos on Saturday visited Tripoli in the Peloponnese and met with the secretary general of the Peloponnese Region, the prefect of Arkadia and the mayor of Tripoli. He later spoke at a closed meeting of ruling New Democracy (ND) party Arkadia cadres.

    In statements to reporters, Pavlopoulos referred to the New Code for Local Government, which, he said, will be tabled in Parliament in the coming days and bear the name "Theodoros Katrivanos".

    Referring to economic matters concerning local government, the minister said that the funds tripled over the past two years, adding that from the Peloponnese regional operation programme, Arkadia absorbed seven per cent in 2004 while the corresponding percentage for 2006 is 33 per cent.
