  • [01] KKE leader on revision of Article XVI

    Communist Party of Greece (KKE) general secretary Aleka Papariga on Monday reiterated her party's stern opposition to any revision in Article XVI, which bans the recognition of non-state universities in Greece.

    Speaking during a press conference, Papariga attacked both ruling New Democracy and main opposition PASOK for their positions in favor of revising the controversial constitutional article, while detailing her party's positions over a state monopoly in the education sector as a whole.

    She also said participation a mass rally on Wednesday to protest the prospects of revision should be high.

    Statements on West Bank visit

    In an unrelated development, Papariga briefed reporters over her tour of the West Bank last week and meeting with Palestinian officials and politicians.

    The KKE leader referred to what she called the ?tragic situation? in the region due to violence on the part of Israeli forces as well as to a security wall being built by the Israeli state.

    Papariga said the wall essentially aims to create political and real boundaries in the area between Israel and the Palestinian areas.

    Finally, she called on local parties and the international community to condemn Israel's policy.
