  • [01] PASOK's Venizelos in favour of survival of coalition government

    Speaking before a joint meeting of his party's parliamentary group and political council to consider latest developments, Venizelos clarified that PASOK did not want early elections and stressed that neither does the Greek people.

    Venizelos threw himself in favour of the survival of the three-party coalition government, saying that there should be no "surprises" between its coalition partners neither "petty partisan behaviours," also calling on DIMAR, the other junior partner of the coalition government, to join the effort.

    Venizelos further accused the New Democracy party of having opened a Pandora's Box by its decision to shut down the state broadcaster ERT, which in turn "raised concerns over the functioning of institutions and democracy."

    He added however that there have been some efforts on the part of Prime Minister Antonis Samaras regarding a possible reopening of the public radio and television, with about 2,000 of its employees.font-family:"Verdana","sans-serif";mso-bidi-font-family:Tahoma;color:#0F1419;
