  • [01] āND Trappedā

    PASOK party first meeting after European elections on Sunday centered on the results and the everyday concerns of citizens. The party's leader George Papandreou described as "bumptious" the ND party stance against election results, stressing that nothing would change as the Prime-minister could not proceed to significant reversals as he would have to reverse his nature.

    Mr. Papandreou stressed that the ND is trapped in a particular concept of ruling and petty partisan deadlocks. He also said that it had received the message of the election results and was condemned for mismanagement. He characteristically said: "they are not dealing with the financial crisis but the crisis within the ND". PASOK president attributed European elections result to the fact that people found trustworthy his party's proposal for the country's exit from the financial crisis and a well-governed state. He also said that PASOK campaign linking the country's financial situation with illegality and impunity received a positive response. Mr. Papandreou also said that PASOK should evaluate the government's policy on economy and draw its proposals. Referring to European Social-Democrats, Mr. Papandreou noted institutional and political puzzlement in front of developments, adding that Socialists victory in Greece and Malta burden the two parties and particularly PASOK to pass a different climate in Europe. PASOK spokesman, George Papakonstantinou said that the Prime-minister did not receive any message and did not realize that Greek people condemned his policies. Taking into consideration abstention to evaluate election results could be labeled as oversimplification said G. Papakonstantinou adding that PASOK also addresses to voters that did not turn out. Reactions Commenting, the GCP said: PASOK criticism is superficial. PASOK leadership is only interested in capitalizing on the government's decay in the faƧade of progressive force.
