  • [01] KKE opposes expatriate voting rights

  • [01] KKE opposes expatriate voting rights

    Communist Party of Greece (KKE) leader Aleka Papariga on Tuesday presented her party's latest political proposals during a press conference in Athens, where she predicted "new and tougher measures and choices" in the future, both inside the country and in international relations. Referring to the Radical Left Coalition (SYRIZA), a rival leftist party in Parliament, Papariga criticised its high-profile proposal towards main opposition PASOK party, accusing the former of bolstering the two-party political system in Greece. The political programme outlined by Papariga included proposals and positions concerning day-to-day problems, international relations, the economy and civil protection. Papariga presented her party's positions on what she called the "popular economy", education, vocational training and management of natural disasters, whereas in reference to foreign relations she underlined the need for Greece to become independent of both NATO and the EU. Greece is a decades-old member of both blocs. Referring to the main opposition PASOK party, Papariga expressed reservations regarding its policy days after a leadership election in the party, and predicted that "new political forces" will be created that could be progressive or conservative. Additionally, the communist leader reiterated KKE's opposition to a government pledge to extend voting rights of tens of thousands of Greek expatriates living abroad, merely noting that a solution is possible for individuals that emigrated in more recent years. Responding to a press question, Papariga said she did not criticise SYRIZA leader Alekos Alavanos' official visit to the neighbouring Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia (FYROM) last week, instead she cited criticism of that party's policy vis-a-vis international relations, describing it as "cosmopolitan".
