  • [01] ND former minister says PASOK government 'trapped itself' with pre-elections pledges

    Main opposition New Democracy (ND) MP and former minister Costis Hatzidakis said on Saturday that the government has trapped itself with its pre-elections commitments, addressing an event organised by the Economic Chamber of Greece.

    Hatzidakis said that, according to prime minister George Papandreou, the biggest deficit faced by the country was a deficit in credibility. "Let's hope that, in the coming months, we will not see that the biggest deficit is a deficit in the seriousness with which the government is handling the economy," he added.

    He also accused the PASOK government of "arbitrarily inflating the fiscal deficit", adding that the first measure taken by the new government on the social security system was to rescind the preceding ND government's measures to salvage the system.

    [02] Bombs neutralised at media social security, pension Funds offices

    Police bomb disposal experts on Saturday neutralised two home-made explosive devices outside the Mass Media social security fund (ETAP-MME) and the Athens Journalists pension fund (TSPEATH) in the Neos Kosmos district of Athens, after an anonymous call to the private television station ALTER.

    The explosive devices had been placed in metal boxes.
