    [02] PASOK on party electoral cooperations

    Main opposition PASOK spokeswoman Maria Karaklioumi said on Monday that electoral cooperations were the product of society's needs, while commenting on statements by Greek party officials over the weekend regarding prospective party collaborations.

    "PASOK has formulated its proposal, which concerns the cooperation with the forces of the Left, which the movement considers as ideologically close to it, while it rejected in a categorical manner any prospect of cooperation with the ruling New Democracy (ND) party," Karaklioumi added.

    The spokeswoman also clarified that PASOK's target "is only one, that is, victory and self-reliance in elections".

    "When PASOK is called on to rule, it will seek the consensus of the broadest possible sectors of society so that reforms which will be implemented can have the broadest possible acceptance," she pointed out.
