  • [01] PASOK on economy, administrartive reform

    The main opposition PASOK party criticised on Wednesday the government's economic policy, with spokeswoman Maria Karaklioumi saying that it resulted to an increase of inflation of 4.9 per cent. She also expressed disagreement with a planned administrative reform.

    Commenting on statements by Economy and Finance Minister George Alogoskoufis after a meeting with Prime Minister Costas Karamanlis earlier Wednesday, Karaklioumi said "this government has proved that it occupies itself with how to empty the citizens' pockets...Unfortunately, it shows that it is incapable of protecting the citizens' income."

    She also addressed a question to Alogoskoufis on "whether he intends to impose new taxes on citizens."

    Karaklioumi also expressed her party's "total disagreement" with the government's planned administrative reform, terming the project an "administrative restructuring".

    "In order to change the government-proposed restructuring to a real administartive reform, two preconditions are needed: The first concerns the radical transformation of the central state and the second relates to resolving all economic, technical and administartive problems that remain since the first Kapodistrias I reform ," she said.

    She added that her party would abstain from every debate on "this restructuring-joke proposed by the ruling New Democracy (ND), if the above two fundamental preconditions are not respected."
