  • [01] Papandreou on social security bill

  • [01] Papandreou on social security bill

    Main opposition PASOK party leader George Papandreou, speaking in Parliament on Thursday during the discussion on the social security bill, accused the government of "authoritarian logic" and of "slipping towards undemocratic means against working people," while promising that his party will abolish this law when it comes to power.

    Papandreou spoke of a "minority government" and reiterated his party's proposal for the withdrawal of the social security bill which, as he said, "is a mine in the foundations of social cohesion."

    The PASOK leader further predicted that there will be reactions, while speaking of the "progressive patriotic front of the opposition that can inspire the Greek people."

    Lastly, Papandreou said that the proposal by Radical Left Coalition (SYRIZA) leader Alekos Alavanos for a referendum on the social security bill "is very positive", adding that PASOK will stand up to the government which has been left alone.
