  • [01] DIMAR leader says country does not need any more memorandums

    ANA/MPA--Democratic Left (DIMAR) president Fotis Kouvelis, who is visiting the city of Thessaloniki on the occasion of the 78th Thessaloniki International Fair (TIF), said on Wednesday that "the fiscal programme is not succeeding. The curbing of both austerity and recession is necessary and it is time for a new negotiation, for the renegotiating of the memorandums".

    Kouvelis added that "the country does not need any more memorandums and what is necessary is for this path of recession and of austerity to stop. The country needs growth. And only with growth is it possible for us to secure the course toward an exit from the crisis".

    He disputed the existence of a primary budget surplus claimed by the government and Prime Minister Antonis Samaras, referring to it as a "communications" exercise trying to put a positive spin on the situation.

    "The primary budget surplus is not a primary surplus," he said, noting that the figure ignored public spending that had not been disbursed and the state's debts to private individuals and legal entities, its debts to Greek citizens.

    "Consequently no over-optimism is needed. What is needed is the change of the policy being followed by the government," he said.

    DIMAR's president was addressing an event for young farmers and presented the party's proposals for the agricultural sector. He said that the future and prospects of the country's agricultural economy must be based on an increase and qualitative upgrading of production, on the production of brand name and certified agricultural products and the promotion of all Greek nutritional products in the national, European and global market.
