  • [01] Karatzaferis on government

    Popular Orthodox Rally (LA.OS) leader George Karatzaferis on Friday repeated his proposal for an "ecumenical government" to be sworn-in.

    He also charged that the current Papandreou government has thoroughly disappointed voters.

    "He (PM George Papandreou) doesn't trust his (human) resources, that's why he's creating a shadow government at the Maximos Mansion (government house) with 20 advisers."

    Karatzaferis predicted that such an ecumenical government will assume power, sooner or later.

    Moreover, the LA.OS leader also expressed his support for the candidacy of controversial former ND MP Petros Mantouvalos for Piraeus mayor in the upcoming local government elections.

    [02] Tsipras touring Mytilene

    Radical Left Coalition (SYRIZA) president Alexis Tsipras said during his two-day tour of Mytilene "we must quit the memorandum and the troika."

    During his visit to the market in Kalloni, Tsipras said that with government policy with its "cutbacks in salaries and pensions, the tax raid on small and medium-level wage earners and plenty of money for banks, not only shall we not exit from the crisis but we shall sink even more into it."

    Tsipras added that "there is another path, and it is the path of growth, redistribution, support for employment, of the laying of new foundations for security. The only thing is that this path necessitates us breaking the plaster of the memorandum."
