  • [01] VENIZELOS: PAPANDREOU THE ONLY SUCCESSION CANDIDATE

    Athens, 30 December 2003 (10:58 UTC+2)

    There will be no other candidacy for succession in the party apart from that of Giorgos Papandreou if Costas Simitis raises the issue of his succession, because it is an extraordinary situation, in which Mr. Papandreou is the most useful person, stated Minister of Culture Evaggelos Venizelos.

    The joint belief that Giorgos Papandreou will be the PASOK official to succeed Costas Simitis in the party's leadership, whenever the issue may be raised, was formed some time ago, noted Mr. Venizelos in an interview to the Eleftherotypia newspaper.

    The Minister of Culture pointed out that democratic procedures and transparency in any changes attempted must be observed, because it is not simply an issue within the party; it is an state and institutional issue that concerns the people.

    He stressed that in no case can we consider Costas Simitis a scapegoat or a sheep to be sacrificed in order to absolve PASOK, and that the situation must be cleared up as soon as possible because Greece's problems cannot wait. Noted that PASOK must apologize for its mistakes and shortcomings in applied policies and that it must make corrective moves emphasizing issues of social cohesion and justice.
