  • [01] PM to present National Development Programme

    ANA/MPA---Prime Minister Antonis Samaras on Tuesday will present the new National Development Programme, which aims at changing the country's production model.

    According to sources, the programme which will be presented at 19.00 during a New Democracy event entitled "Greece: a vision of Growth" at Benaki Museum, refers to the creation of 550,000 jobs in the coming years.

    Samaras is expected to repeat that gradually – as the country fulfills its fiscal targets- taxes and social security contributions will be reduced while the minimum guaranteed income and a series of regulations on enhancing social cohesion will be introduced.

    The programme also includes the strategic sectors where Greece has competitive advantages and on which growth will be based, such as shipping, transport, agricultural products, energy, research, innovation and new technologies.

    Moreover, it includes provisions for attracting foreign investments with the creation of a favourable environment, cutting down on red tape, deregulating the markets as well as the privatizations programme.

    During his speech, Samaras is expected to give indications of his plans during the last days before the Europarliament elections and the second round of the local administration polls and raise the dilemma of the electoral showdown.

    [02] SYRIZA: Greece will send a strong message of change on Sunday

    ANA/MPA---Greece will send a strong message of change at the elections on Sunday, SYRIZA leader Alexis Tsipras said in a speech in Bologna on Monday.

    Tsipras is visiting Italy to support the Italian ballot ticket of the radical left "The Other Europe with Tsipras." According to the Italian media, around 12,000 people were gathered in Bologna's central square Piazza Maggiore holding with the red flags of "L 'Altra Europa" (The Other Europe).

    "To the clear dilemma of the ballot box: yes or no to austerity. To the clear wager of the elections: Which Europe? That of Democracy or that of Merkel? The only response that Ms Merkel is afraid of, the only response that the neoliberal European incumbent is afraid of is the response of the European Left," Tsipras said.

    SYRIZA leader also called on voters not to abstain from the elections. "Because Europe is at a historical crossroad, we ask every citizen to vote and not stay at home on Sunday," the Party of the European Left candidate for the European Commission said.

    [03] PASOK leader Venizelos calls for unity of the centre left

    ANA/MPA--PASOK leader (and Government Vice President) Evangelos Venizelos sent a message of unity to all the forces of the centre-left "without hesitations and prejudices" in an statement to NEA newspaper ahead of the second round of the local administration elections and the euroelections on Sunday.

    Venizelos also noted the "constituitional obligation to fight against the supporters of nazism and violence".

    [04] Gov't spokesman: No national elections issue after euroelections

    ANA/MPA--Government spokesman Simos Kedikoglou estimated that "the Greek citizens, with their vote, will safeguard the stability" speaking on Tuesday to private TV Mega adding that "national elections issue after the euroelections does not exist".

    "Stability is the wager in order the economy to be supported and to keep the investments" said Kedikoglou.
