    [02] PM calls for discussion on revised Lisbon Treaty

    (ANA-MPA) Prime Minister George Papandreou has proposed the start of a campaign to collect up to a million signatures in favour of an official discussion within the European Union on a new and revised Lisbon Treaty.

    Papandreou put the idea forward on Saturday, during a meeting of ruling PASOK's Parliamentary group before the start of the debate on the 2011 budget, saying that such an initiative would be addressed to all European citizens, trade unions, national parliaments and non-governmental organisations.
