  • [01] Papandreou attacks gov't on social security

  • [01] Papandreou attacks gov't on social security

    Main opposition PASOK party leader George Papandreou, speaking in Parliament on Tuesday during the ongoing debate on the social security bill, criticised the government and accused it "of trying to terrorise working people and penalise their strikes."

    "Enough is enough, all the working people are shouting take back your bill. They are shouting take it back, enough of tragedy, but you are deaf. You are leaving a country unfortified with garbage, without electricity and you are barrickading yourselves behind your authoritarianism, judicial prosecutions and the effort to penalise strikes," the PASOK leader said.

    "The government, without having made any substantive and serious dialogue on the social security issue, is coming hurriedly to submit in a coup d'etat fashion and to ratifiy the social security bill with an offhand, authoritarian and dangerous logic," he added.

    Lastly, Papandreou said, addressing the government: "it is not the establishment that is reacting to your options. It supports you and it is the only one. Those who are reacting are the Greek people and you must listen to them because they are telling you to withdraw it."
