  • [01] PASOK leader presents 'viable city' proposals

  • [01] PASOK leader presents 'viable city' proposals

    Main opposition PASOK leader George Papandreou presented on Monday night 16 proposals for a "viable city", during an event held in the Athens district of Nea Smyrni at which the inaugural proclamation of the ticket "Nea Smyrni-City with a face" of mayoral candidate Nora Katseli was made.

    Papandreou sressed that his proposals constituted action axes for local administration and would be included in PASOK's action programme after the national elections, expressing certainty that PASOK will win them.

    Some of the proposals are that the city should become a centre of innovation with educational, cultural and other services being provided, the city must be financially independent and have independent funds, cities must have urban renewal with protection for building heritage and have a target of increasing greenery by 20 percent per inhabitant over a period of four years, while local programmes for the procurement and production of energy must be developed.

    The PASOK party leader also said that World Environment Day signals PASOK's intention and will for human, viable and green cities and criticised the government for, "as was the case with a series of other major issues, losing the opportunity to utilise the heritge left by the Olympic Games and abandoned this capital which belongs to the Greek people."
