  • [01] PASOK on state of economy

    Main opposition Panhellenic Socialist Movement (PASOK) party spokesman George Papaconstantinou, referring to the economy on Monday, said that the government is moving with Olympic Games rhythms and is contesting a gold medal in taxation and a world record in the dissolution of the economy and of expectations for the economy.

    The spokesman added that on August 15 in 2007, and while the country was burning, Prime Minister Costas Karamanlis had called for a fresh popular mandate to prepare the budget and had received it, while Finance and Economy Minister George Alogoskoufis stated a few months later that the economy has been shielded, and now in the middle of 2008 the budget is in a state of a full collapse and a new tax raid has already begun.

    Stressing that "the worse is yet to come," Papaconstantinou said that "we are saying that this economic policy must change, but it is evident that it can change with a PASOK government."

    [02] KKE against EU initiative

    The Communist Party of Greece (KKE) said, in an announcement on Monday, that an immigration pact being promoted by the French EU presidency with the support of the Greek government, is an "accumulation of barbaric and inhuman measures and it is in harmony with the reactionary character and the anti-popular role of the EU."

    "The waves of migrants are not heading for the countries of the EU through lack of information, as the Interior minister claims. They are forced to resort to the slave traders due to the desperate situation that they are facing in their countries, due to exploitation and the imperialist wars in which the EU is also participating and playing a leading role," KKE claims.
