  • [01] Opposition outlines election platform

  • [01] Opposition outlines election platform

    The main opposition Panhellenic Socialist Movement (PASOK) on Saturday outlined its election platform for local elections this year.

    "The battle will be to improve democracy and the quality of life, back (rights for) citizens, and overturn an anachronistic and centralised model of government," party leader George Papandreou told a nationwide meeting on local government.

    "PASOK's new face of government will adhere as closely as possible to the public's decisions. This is the essential difference between PASOK and Premier Karamanlis' New Right, conservative government," Papandreou said.

    Among items for public debate was the city of the future, he noted.

    Papandreou also stated that the final and detailed version of the party's platform would be presented before electoins.

    The party's shadow economic spokeswoman, Vasso Papandreou, underlined the need for change in the country's growth model as part of strategy for 2007-2013 and beyond.

    Needed were reform of the country's administrative structure as part of fiscal and economic policy, along with change of the social state, education and health.

    In addition, the creation of an environment conducive to business was required, Papandreou said.

    PASOK was committed to spending 80% of funds on regional projects, with 50% of that total destined for regional programmes, she added.
