    [02] KKE leader on economy

    Communist Party of Greece (KKE) Secretary General Aleka Papariga said on Thursday that "the government is utilising the positions and the directions of the European Union to take longterm measures that have no relation with the immediate covering of deficits."

    Papariga added that "they are measures that concern labour relations, pensioning, social rights."

    The KKE leader further said that "the government found a big opportunity, as well as the (main opposition) New Democracy party, to take revenge for the achievements that the working people had after the war and the post-junta years."
