  • [01] Papandreou tours children's hospitals

    Main opposition leader George Papandreou on Thursday toured Greece's two largest children's hospitals, the side-by-side Aghia (St.) Sophia and Aglaia Kyriakou facilities in east Athens.

    Afterwards, Papandreou reiterated that his party's focus is on the individual, echoing recent addresses to party cadres.

    "...and, of course, the healthcare system, with particular sensitivity to the health of children," he said, before expressing his gratitude to the medical and nursing staff of the facilities while at the same time launching into a sharp critique of the government's policy in the public healthcare sector.

    Among others, Papandreou said the procurement of vital radiation therapy equipment is pending at the facilities.

    [02] KKE rails against OA plan

    Communist Party of Greece (KKE) secretary general Aleka Papariga on Thursday reiterated that her party wants to contribute to the popular classes' reaction against the privatisation of debt-ridden national carrier Olympic Airways (OA).

    Speaking a day after the EU Commission approved a Greek government plan to rescue, restructure and eventually privatise the ailing national carrier, Papariga said OA was being sold for the same reasons that public utilities, ports and airports are on sale, namely, EU directives and not because of their operating deficits and losses.

    Papariga also claimed that OA employees should not rely on government's promises that their jobs will be guaranteed.
