  • [01] KKE leader on elections

  • [01] KKE leader on elections

    Communist Party of Greece (KKE) Secretary General Aleka Papariga predicted on Thursday that there would be early general elections in the country, adding at the same time that Prime Minister Costas Karamanlis "is keeping a surprise in store".

    "It is obvious that the government can not finish its work. Now, whether elections will be held next Spring or just before euroelections (next June) I am not in a position to know exactly. I believe that the prime minister is keeping some sort of surprise in store, and this according to gallops and his advisers," Papariga told reporters after a meeting with a delegation of women's organisations.

    Responding to a question on the world economic crisis, Papariga said that "after Germany's official entry into recession, it is being proven that all those, that is the government and the other opposition parties, who attribute the crisis exclusively to the banking system, interest rates and credit cards -which of course constitute a problem- they are misleading and deceiving the people. And this because the crisis is generated in the real economy, in profit making, the ultra-exploitation, so that the response should be measures for the protection of workers, poor farmers and medium income earners and not only the adjustement of particular aspects of the problem."
