    Papariga added that "a strong KKE in Parliament and among the people" can spoil "the plans of the industrialists, the exploiters and their parties."amna

    The KKE leader further said that "the real dilemma is:A counterattack by the popular movement, or the impoverishment of the working people?", adding that "there is not even one antimonopoly, antieuropean union, anticapitalist measure in the programmes of New Democracy (ND) and SYRIZA."

    Samaras added that he ascertained also that there is a minority of countries in the European Union which is waiting for the opportunity to show Greece the exit from the euro, but added that the majority of countries wants Greece in the euro.amna

    The ND leader also warned that if Greece leaves the euro then the disaster that will take place will not be repairable, saying that there is no way after six months for it to return to the euro and that "if we exit from the euro, if we clash with the partners, everything will be blown into the air."

    AMNA--Radical Left Coalition (SYRIZA) president Alexis Tsipras, addressing a rally in Omonia Square in downtown Athens on Thursday evening, extended an invitation of "patriotic and democratic unity" to the Greek people, regardless of the vote on May 6 and with the criterion of their own interest, of their children and of the country.

    Tsipras committed himself that a new era "will begin on Monday, the era of major changes and of major reforms and the bankrupt memorandum will become finally a thing of the past." Also criticising the New Democracy (ND) and PASOK parties, he stressed that the Greek people "are leaving behind the two parties that made the lie their flag to extort the Greek people and steal votes."amna

    The SYRIZA leader further said "terrorise the terrorists" and also accused the two parties that "corruption is their womb, vested interests their womb, disaster their womb" and that they "looted Greece."
