  • [01] Papandreou says PASOK, ND two different worlds

  • [01] Papandreou says PASOK, ND two different worlds

    Main opposition PASOK party leader George Papandreou, speaking in an interview with the newspaper "Kosmos tou Epenthiti" (World of the Investor), said that his PASOK party and the ruling New Democracy party are two different worlds and stressed that its aim is to bring new ethics for power.

    Papandreou pointed out that the crisis in the economy is not an imported one and called for salary increases and a decrease in taxes to confront high prices.

    The PASOK leader further said that the cases of the Hellenic Telecommunications Organisation (OTE) and of Siemens are crumpling the image of democracy.

    He noted that ND is delivering OTE to the Germans for a minimal price and in a scandalous way. On the issue of the neighbouring Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia (FYROM), he said that the aim must be to find a name for it that will be used in every case and that will have a geographical qualifier.

    Replying to a question on cooperation with the Radical Left Coalition (SYRIZA), Papandreou said that this party is unable to assume serious responsibilities towards the country and it is following a course of easy protest and of the denunciation of all.
