  • [01] LAOS rally in Kavala

    Popular Orthodox Rally (LA.OS) president George Karatzaferis on Sunday sharply criticised ruling New Democracy and main opposition PASOK over what he called a phenomenon of nepotism in Greek politics.

    "Neither of the two major parties is able to provide solutions to country's outstanding issues," Karatzaferis said from the northeast city of Kavala, underlining that the issue it is not directly tied to the economy but political.

    Regarding his charges of nepotism, he said that in the past 65 years three families have governed Greece, an unprecedented phenomenon for Europe.

    Asked about the possibility of cooperation with ND after the Euro-elections, Karatzaferis said he feels closer to PM Costas Karamanlis than with Foreign Minister Dora Bakoyannis.

    [02] Tsipras interview to paper

    Coalition of the Left (Synaspismos) party leader Alexis Tsipras used the phrase "the king has no clothes" during an interview with the "Ethnos" newspaper to comment on what he called "scandal-mongering" and government's stance.

    Referring to the "green economy" model repeatedly being uttered over the recent period, he said the crucial question is what you will do when private interests work against the environment.

    In commenting on the neophyte "Ecologists - Greens" party debuting in the Euro-elections, he noted that environmental protection without clashes is like trying to "make an omelet without breaking eggs".

    Tsipras also called on main opposition PASOK to stop "caressing bankers and industrialists".
