  • [01] PM Samaras: We will not allow Greece to return to chaos

    ANA-MPA -- Prime Minister Antonis Samaras opened his speech at a central Athens rally on Friday evening with an attack against main opposition Radical Left Coalition (SYRIZA), charging it wanted to "return Greece back to chaos" and asserting they would be no new measures and new memorandums by his government.

    Speaking at Syntagma Square prior to Sunday's double elections of local government (second round) and the European Parliament, Samaras said, "We are at the most critical moment of the greatest battle. Greece will forge ahead, we will win this race."

    He noted, "We are exiting the memorandums and the crisis" and said he would not refer to the primary surplus, the dropping unemployment rate, and Greece's return to international markets. "These are things you know," he told the audience, "as you also know that some do not want us to exit the crisis, they want us to return back to chaos. We will not let them return us to chaos. They want to topple the government - and New Democracy responds: Why overturn the government now that we are at the most critical point?"

    The premier charged SYRIZA with trying to "freeze everything and bring instability," and "other unbelievable gibberish they say." Their assertions "are enough to create anew the danger of our exiting the euro," Samaras said, and called on voters to action: "Every one of you must prevent the danger of Greece returning to uncertainty," he said.

    He also noted that people's relaxed attitude who see the country exiting the crisis is dangerous: "Let no one play the game of those who want fear, instability and panic."

    "When they call for early elections, we respond with the need for a new Constitution. The Constitution must be revised so that the President of the Republic is directly elected by the people. I have been tearing up the memorandums daily, these past two years," he concluded.
