  • [01] Gov't Vice president on reshuffle, economy

  • [01] Gov't Vice president on reshuffle, economy

    Government vice president Theodoros Pangalos reminded that it was the prime minister's prerogative on when and if a reshuffle takes place, merely noting that a consideration of ministers' performance should take place, while stressing that PASOK always has "strong reserves."

    In his interview with an Athens weekly paper on Sunday, Pangalos admitted that there is sluggishness in terms of economic growth, as investment plans are on the table that, nevertheless, get stuck in various ministries.

    At this point he cited the finance ministry, the town planning and environment ministry, and possibly the culture ministry, as the primary culprits where investment plans can face delays.

    As regards the memorandum, he said it constitutes a reality, although the role of the government, apart from its implementation, is "to proceed with structural changes, which are essential and compulsory for some time."

    Referring to the possibility of a fact-finding committee on the economy, he said that "it cannot be done." There is no criminal offence, there is only popular disapproval."
