    [02] Interior, agriculture ministers address PASOK party convention

    06/07/2002 16:41:02

    Interior Minister Costas Skandalidis on Saturday posed the dilemma of ''an organized and creative overturn of affairs or open rebellion,'' in his address to a PASOK convention that began on Friday.

    He stressed that he stood for the first of the two options, clarifying that ''we should orient ourselves and change the focus our policy from numbers to people, from projects to quality of life''.

    ''Organized and creative overturn of affairs means that the focus on the economy it is not enough, the convergence of indexes and the rates of development, in order to secure the new victory is not just the projects' funding often mentioned correctly so by the premier, rather it is a campaign against corruption, for meritocracy, evaluation, decentralization, regional restructuring, quality services, all that which amounts to a new model of institutional organizing of democracy,'' Skandalidis said.

    He pushed the point and challenged ''everyone that believes that were are sailing to the wrong direction, in regards to our aims and targets, should come up and say it clearly and request a change of leadership''.

    On his part, Agriculture Minister George Drys said ''citizens do not despise our policy, they despise our implementation practice. When this implementation practice of ours does not instill safety, does not create optimism, is not friendly toward the citizen, does make the necessary changes in all sectors every single day in all levels''.

    Drys called on all ''to stop negotiating our fiefs and gather around our president and prime minister who is identified with the modernization of the country''.
