  • [01] Parties' messages

    Opposition parliamentary parties issued messages for the New Year referring extensively to current political affairs.

    Main opposition PASOK party leader George Papandreou said in a New Year's message that the Greeks "realise that salvation cannot result from compromises but from clear progressive solutions." He added that "we know that we Greeks deserve and can achieve what is better. Provided that we do not fear truths."

    The Communist Party of Greece (KKE) said in its message that "there is a path for the people not to pay for the consequences of the capitalist crisis, the all the more reactionary changes that capital promotes. There is a path for us to repel the new antipopular measures that the European Union and the (ruling) New Democracy and PASOK parties are preparing secretly and openly."

    The Coalition of the Left, Movements and Ecology (Synaspismos) said that the new year that is coming "is inheriting the problems that have been accumulated by the international economic crisis and by the neo-liberal government policy in all sectors of society and of our life."

    The Popular Orthodox Rally (LAOS) party leader George Karatzaferis expressed the hope that 2009 "will bring greater peace, calm, work and prudence and will leave behind the quarrels, the arson attacks and the big words of 2008, and also that God will pacify the souls of those who take dramatic decisions at the expense of the many."
