  • [01] PASOK leader meets Italy's Veltroni

  • [01] PASOK leader meets Italy's Veltroni

    Main opposition PASOK leader and Socialist International President George Papandreou met in Athens on Thursday with Walter Veltroni, leader of Italy's Democratic Party.

    No statements were made after the meeting.

    On his part, PASOK spokesman George Papaconstantinou said on Thursday that the decrease by 0.75 percent in the European Central Bank's main interest rate was a "move in the right direction," calling at the same time on the government "to ensure that this decrease in the cost of money will pass on to the loan holders."

    The spokesman also said that "PASOK will not allow the crisis to be used as an alibi for the infringement of the rights of working people," referring to proposals made by the President of the Athens Chamber of Commerce and Industry (EBEA), Constantine Mihalos, and added that these proposals "show the nonexistence of planning and the dissolution of supervisory apparatuses."

    Papaconstantinou further said that opposite these proposals lie those of PASOK for supporting employment, while the party has also submitted a draft law on employment for young working people.
