  • [01] KKE leader in Patras

    Communist Party of Greece (KKE) leader Aleka Papariga on Sunday spoke in the western port city of Patras, where she reiterated her party's total and uncompromising opposition with the government's policies, while noting that KKE will continue to have a class-based ideology as its core belief.

    "During the counter-revolution's earthquake (late 1980s and early '90s) the shockwaves even reached us, just as all other communist parties, we held out, albeit with losses. Our opponents however, did not win out; they did not finish us off, as they believed in 1991. Shortly afterwards, they again found us in front of them, with renewed power and momentum," she told supporters in the city.

    Papariga also said her party does aim to govern, "but this power must come from the working class and its allies".

    The latest round of opinion poll results were published over the weekend in several Athens dailies, with the trend apparently showing a rebound by the two major political parties at the expense of smaller Parliament-represented parties.

    Specifically, one poll gives ruling New Democracy party (ND) 29.8 percent of respondents' preference to 25.8 percent for main opposition PASOK. A previous opinion poll by the same firm showed ND 29.1 with percent and PASOK with 23.2 percent.

    The Coalition of the Left (Synaspismos) party fell by 3.2 percentage points from the previous opinion poll.

    The opinion poll was published by the firm Kapa Research and published in the Athens daily "Vima".

    Meanwhile, another firm -- MRB for the paper "Eleftheros Typos" -- gave ND 30.8 percentage points to 27.2 for PASOK.

    Finally, the Sunday weekly "Proto Thema" (Alco firm) published results showing 28.3 percentage points for ND; 24.6 for PASOK and 14.3 for Synaspismos.
