    [02] Greece welcomes sanctions

    (ANA-MPA)Greece on Sunday welcomed the UN Security Council resolution that "proves the international communitys volition for an immediate end to the violence in Libya and a peaceful solution of the problems, with the aim of satisfying the just demands of its people".

    [03] ND: 'No confidence'

    A main opposition New Democracy (ND) spokesman on Saturday said the party will use a "no confidence" measure against the finance minister whenever it sees fit, speaking in Thessaloniki during a briefing of the party's communication policy.

    Moreover, in answer to a press question, spokesman Yiannis Mihelakis said ND was "not targetting individuals, but policies".

    "If someone feels responsibility for his policies, then he can resign without the need for a vote of no confidence," he said, in direct reference to recent and sharp criticism of Finance Minister George Papaconstantinou.

    Finally, he reminded that ND leader Antonis Samaras has tabled a set of proposals to jump-start the economy.
