  • [01] PASOK spokesman on party agenda

  • [01] PASOK spokesman on party agenda

    Main opposition PASOK party spokesman Petros Efthymiou, replying to a question on Wednesday on a possible change in the party's agenda, said that "PASOK's agenda is crystal-clear, lucid and scheduled in a pure way vis-a-vis the Greek people, to whom it is coming with its programme and its positions on the economy, society, the institutions and the foreign policy of the country."

    Efthymiou further said that "at the same time, PASOK is exercising responsible opposition, as is also necessitated by its constitutional duty, as well as the nature of the policies of the (ruling) New Democracy (ND) party which are profoundly negative for the country and the Greek citizen."

    Lastly, Efthymiou said that this is the "steadfast sailing course" of PASOK from which it will not deviate "until the Greek people give their own solution which will be the elections."

    Also commenting further on the issue of elections, Efthymiou said that "as it is known, those who have no political position resort to oracles. It is evident that (Prime Minister Costas) Mr. Karamanlis has been a feather in the wind of political conjuncture over the past six months. Mr. Karamanlis has left the role of prime minister to his ministers. For this reason, every minister expresses in public sometimes the one and sometimes the other position on elections in such a way that Mr. Karamanlis has been replaced in a role that corresponds institutionally only to himelf. Mr. Karamanlis fears elections and for this reason he is talking of elections" and concluded by saying that "the only healthy solution is for us to go to the polls."
