    ND Arcadia deputy, Petros Tatoulis insists on his solitary road within the party while statements in his website reconfirmed information that the gap between himself and the ruling party is getting bigger. In an article on his website, Petros Tatoulis targeted attacks against Ministers of State, Foreign Affairs, Finance, Merchant Marine and secondly against the Prime-minister. He called Minister of State, Thodoros Roussopoulos, whose wife works as a journalist in a television channel, to resign while Foreign Minister, Dora Bakoyianni did not escape criticism on the grounds of her statement that the government will not become hostage of anyone. Petros Tatoulis recent criticism has given rise to strong reactions within the ND party while senior members have even got to the point to request his resignation. "When what is being done is against someones conscience, he should bravely say good bye and leave", said ND party Kavala deputy, George Kalatzis in an interview with NET 105.8. Neither alternate government spokesman nor ND party senior members made any comments in response to Petros Tatoulis attacks saying that this is the probably the 9 the time that he expresses his views criticizing ministers.
