  • [01] Papandreļu: PASOK regaining its identity

    Main opposition PASOK party leader George Papandreou will meet on Tuesday with visiting president of the Italian Republic Giorgio Napolitano.

    Addressing a meeting of the party's Political Council on Monday night, Papandreou stressed that "it is not a time to celebrate, we have much work ahead of us", referring to recent opinion polls indicating a PASOK lead over ruling New Democracy, adding that his address at the Thessaloniki International Fair (TIF) had been positively met, which means that "the people are now listening to what PASOK has to say, which in turn increases the party's responsibilties".

    Papandreou praised the Political Council's contribution to PASOK's successful presence at the TIF, while he also set out the party's priorities, stressing that the target was to "bring back politics to PASOK".

    He also said that, in that direction, he considered it important that the Panhellenic Socialist Movement "clarified, early on, who we are, with whom we are, who are on the other side, and what our fundamental priorities are".

    "PASOK is regaining its identity, albeit gradually, that of a Movement of the people, and not of governmentism," Papandreou concluded.
