  • [01] PM rules out snap elections, says gov't will bring Greece out of crisis

  • [01] PM rules out snap elections, says gov't will bring Greece out of crisis

    Greek prime minister George Papandreou said that his ruling PASOK party will bring Greece out of supervision and dependence and have it stand on its own two feet once again, addressing a PASOK national conference on Saturday, and effectively ruled out early general elections, saying that "the citizens will judge us in 2013" (when the current government's term in office ends).

    By then, he added, "not only will we have succeeded in Greece emerging from the crisis but we will also have completed the many and important changes that will lay the foundations for a different course for Greece in the future".

    Papandreou's address marked the opening of the two-day national conference, taking place amid stringent security at the Olympic Tae Kwon Do indoor complex in Neo Faliro, near Piraeus, which will set out the party's directions and priorities for the coming period. The conference is attended by PASOK members and friends, representatives of institutional social agencies and citizens' action groups.

    According to an introductory note of the national conference, "at the present political, social and economic conjuncture, through mass and democratic procedures, PASOK is attempting to make deep changes that will re-determine the country's developmental priorities, strengthen the social cohesion and reinforce social solidarity and justice".

    In a series of pre-conference meetings, discussions were held on six themes: Public Administration and Local Government, Development and change of production model, the Social State, National Security policy, Hellenism of the Diaspora, and PASOK and the socialist potential today.

    The conference marks the 37th anniversary of the founding of the Panhellenic Socialist Movement on September 3, 1974, by the late former prime minister Andreas Papandreou, father of current prime minister and PASOK leader George Papandreou.
