  • [01] PASOK: 'Time for the people to speak'

  • [01] PASOK: 'Time for the people to speak'

    Main opposition Panhellenic Socialist Movement (PASOK) party spokesman Petros Efthymiou commented Monday on the issue of opinion polls and early elections, saying that the real opinion poll is the ballot box poll and adding that the government has already been called on to agree to it and that it is time for the people to speak.

    On the question of what PASOK plans to do if early elections are not called, Efthymiou said that "elections are a necessity that the Greek people are sharing, who are experiencing the deadlocks of government policy."

    Commenting on statements made on Monday by government spokesman Theodoros Roussopoulos, the main opposition party spokesman said that "he is repeating an attack on PASOK's president George Papandreou, without replying to the specific issues raised by him."

    "It would be good if the government sposkesman and his government would assume their responsibilities towards society and responsibilities for issues created by themselves," Efthymiou said.

    PASOK's spokesman pointed out that universities remain closed, while we have "unaccountable action by hooded people in regions not included in asylum, because no asylum includes public streets and squares, either of Athens or of Thessaloniki."

    Efthymiou further stressed that "educational issues cannot be the object of management of a tension strategy and in no way can the government not assume its responsibilities in a double way, for the consolidation of the citizens' feeling of security and for there not to be a strategy of tension in crucial and sensitive sectors, such as education."
