  • [01] PASOK leader to spend Easter at home

    Main opposition PASOK party spokesman George Papaconstantinou said on Tuesday that the health of the party's leader, George Papandreou, is developing smoothly, adding that he will be spending Easter at home.

    Papandreou was injured slightly while riding his bicycle last Sunday and was taken to the KAT hospital in the Athens suburb of Kifisia for treatment.

    PASOK 'shadow' minister calls for action over high prices

    Main opposition PASOK's 'shadow' minister for development Mihalis Chrysohoidis on Tuesday stressed the need for action to combat high prices, saying that this was becoming a political priority. He stressed that Greece had become an expensive country as a result of 'cartels' and business groups that the government was tolerating and which set the prices of products and services with secret deals and harmonised pricing policy.

    "For PASOK, the constant care that the state is currently obliged to show for the protection of consumers from high prices has become on of our most important political actions and coincides with the need to cultivate and highlight new models of consumerism as a country; consumption that makes financial sense, is of safe quality and environmentally responsible," he said.

    He contrasted the reduction of inflation under PASOK governments from 15 percent to 3 percent with the government's record on this issue, saying that this consisted of 41 measures that have not been enforced, or actually benefited profiteering.

    According to PASOK's representative, the living costs of the average four-member family now exceeded 3,000 euros a month from 2015 euros in 2004, so that the average family had a monthly income shortfall of 350 euros that was covered either through borrowing or by cutting back on essential goods and services.
