  • [01] PM: There is a limit to tolerance

    Nothing will obstruct the truth, Prime Minister Costas Karamanlis stressed on Friday, adding that there would be no tolerance for any illegality, addressing a meeting of his ruling New Democracy (ND) party's Central Committee, while at the same time he challenged dissenters to a direct face-off, saying that he had manifested great patience and tolerance with cadres' public statements and personal promotion, but warned that there was a limit to tolerance, and that he would not accept attitudes that undermined the common efforts and harmed the party.

    Karamanlis further said that the government understood the citizens' problems, adding that it was advancing a plan for tackling those problems.

    Further, he adamantly ruled out the prospect of a government reshuffle, and challenged dissenters: "Whoever disputes me, let him confront me face-to-face".
