  • [01] Tsipras: Target is to form Left government

    AMNA--The goal of the Coalition of the Radical Left (SYRIZA parliamentary alliance) is to receive an exploratory mandate and to subsequently form a Left government, SYRIZA leader Alexis Tsipras said in an interview with AMNA.

    He expressed certainty that an upset in Sunday's general election in Greece will oblige the leaderships of both the Communist Party of Greece (KKE) and the Democratic Left (DIMAR) parties to revise their stance, so that a Left government may be formed.amna

    Tsipras said his party's goal is to receive the exploratory mandate and form a Left government so as to avert a PASOK-New Democracy (ND) coalition government, adding that, on Sunday, "the Memorandum must be totally defeated", otherwise "these elections will be as if they never took place" since new austerity measures will begin to be implemented as of Monday.

    [02] First priority the re-establishment of Merchant Marine Min.

    AMNA--Greek shipping, the leading maritime power in the world, and the Greek port and shipping infrastructure are the main pylons of the new productive model of the country, underlined PASOK leader Evangelos Venizelos during a visit on Wednesday to the Piraeus Port Organisation (OLP).amna

    The PASOK leader said that the his first priority is the re-establishment of the autonomous Merchant Marine Ministry, adding that in OLP has been created the basis for the formation of a Greek ports network. He also stressed that there needs to be a distinction between the Port Authority, the ports' management and the port services.amna

    Referring to the private investments in ports, he said that they are welcome, but the state monopolies will not hand over their position to private ones.amna

    "We must invest in Piraeus port and in all the Greek ports, in the Port Authority and in an organised port policy that will enable major investments without creating new private but with the strong participation of foreign investors, because that's the only way for the Greek port industry to be competitive in the Mediterranean," stated Venizelos after the conclusion of his visit to OLP.
