  • [01] KKE's Koutsoumbas says ND, SYRIZA have no clear-cut positions

    ANA/MPA---Communist Party (KKE) general secretary Dimitris Koutsoumbas on Thursday said that the confrontation between New Democracy (ND) and Radical Left Coalition (SYRIZA) is full of contradictions because they have no clear-cut positions and also because they tell voters what they want to hear.

    In an interview to Parapolitika private radio, he said that the confrontation between the two mainstream parties has the features of a "mockery" and underlined that the issues of taxation will continue to burden the lower-income earners.

    He said that SYRIZA's position as regards the negotiation with the troika of the country's lenders is full of nonsense, while referring to the strategies and programmes of KKE and SYRIZA, he said that they are completely different.

    He also noted that a major coalition government can be formed based on the programmes of the political parties, the KKE not included, because there are no radical differences between them.

    Koutsoumbas said that the people should go to the polls not just to express their anger and indignation but to cast their vote with a clear mind, with their thoughts on the day after.

    [02] ANEL's Kammenos on his party's likely post-election cooperation with SYRIZA

    ANA - MPA -- Opposition Independent Greeks (ANEL) leader Panos Kammenos on Thursday said that "it is our national obligation to go united to Berlin, Brussels and Paris to defend the Greek people's rights," responding to a question on the likelihood of a post-election cooperation with SYRIZA.

    In an interview in "Epikera" magazine, Kammenos underlined that "we have big ideological differences with SYRIZA," but "we have to be united for the country's interest."

    On Friday, Kammenos will visit the northern cities of Serres and Katerini. On Sunday, he will give an election campaign speech in Thessaloniki, while his televised press conference is scheduled for Wednesday. On Thursday, he will address an election campaign rally in Athens.
