  • [01] PASOK leader addresses Parliamentary Council

  • [01] PASOK leader addresses Parliamentary Council

    Main opposition PASOK party leader George Papandreou addressed his party's Parliamentary Council on Tuesday, stressing that the government "is at its end and for this reason all its movements are spasmodic."

    The meeting focused primarily on the party's joint proposal with the Coalition of the Left, Movements and Ecology (Synaspismos) party on the creation of a Factfinding Committee to probe the phonetapping issue.

    Referring to the issue of military service dodgers, Papandreou expressed support for absolute transparency, but with respect for personal data, however.

    Party spokesman Petros Efthymiou said there can be no question of personal data protection in cases concerning forgeries, false certifications and other cases of fraud.

    Papandreou also referred to education -article 16 of the Constitution was not a topic of discussion- and to what the education minister reportedly said in a meeting with reporters on the examination system, accusing the government of handling all issues with "unbelievable offhandedness."

    On the question of phonetapping, Efthymiou noted that the common denominator of the positions of both the party leader and of cadres who referred to the issue was that it "is the biggest scandal of the post-junta era that harmed democratic institutions."
