  • [01] Papandreou addresses PASOK's Parliamentary Council

    Addressing the first meeting of his party's Parliamentary Council on Tuesday, main opposition PASOK leader George Papandreou attacked the government and said that it had failed on all fronts. He stressed that the key to the success of the newly created body would be to present a united front and take dynamic action against the government, while defending and promoting PASOK's positions and decisions.

    On the issue of the budget, Papandreou said that PASOK would ensure that it highlighted the under-funding of education, health, the undermining of social security and the government's lack of sensitivity toward families.

    Commenting on the government's tax reforms, meanwhile, PASOK's leader said that it was actually a harsh redistribution of income from the many to the wealthy few, which was socially unfair and did not lead to development.

    He also stressed that the members of the Parliamentary Council each bore "personal responsibility" for the sector that they had undertaken and the actions they decided to take, urging them to mobilise all citizens and party members on the issues discussed during the meeting.
