  • [01] Samaras query over economy

    (ANA-MPA) -- Main opposition New Democracy (ND) leader Antonis Samaras on Tuesday tabled his first Parliament question towards the prime minister, a query focusing squarely on the country's borrowing procedures, what he called an attack by speculators and the settlement of Greek state bond transactions.

    Samaras points to specific comments by PASOK deputies in Parliament as well as press reports regarding the country's stance vis-à-vis skyrocketing bond spreads from November 2010 until April 2010, "which essentially led to an inability to borrow", as he said. (ANA-MPA)

    He also referred to omissions and acts that led to a change in the settlement procedure for Greek state bonds. (ANA-MPA)
