  • [01] PASOK to hold congress on February 22-24

  • [01] PASOK to hold congress on February 22-24

    Main opposition Panhellenic Socialist Movement (PASOK) leader George Papandreou chaired on Wednesday a meeting of the Congress Central Organising Committee secretariat, which decided to hold the party's congress on February 22-24.

    Addressing the meeting, Papandreou said that the party "has during the past two months highlighted the real reasons of its defeat" in the September 16 general elections, but also "the conditions under which it can become government again" and pledged the "return of the party to principles and values."

    He said that PASOK should give assurances to the Greek people that it is ready to "assume the country's fate" terming the upcoming congress a "milestone in the re-foundation and renovation of PASOK."

    Papandreou also charged that the government "has no plan for the country."

    "The first New Democracy governance was a cummunications trick in which opposition was carried out against the opposition, while now the government plays the game of delays, playing at the same time with the citizens' fear and killing all prospects for the country."

    Referring to the November 11 intra-party leadership elections, which he won, Papandreou said: "We have won the first battle while we must win the war in order to liberate the country from political inertia and social despair."
