  • [01] PM holds meetings on educational issues

    Prime Minister Costas Karamanlis conferred on Wednesday with the chairman of parliament's Standing Committee on Cultural and Educational Affairs (New Democracy MP) Tasos Spiliopoulos, who told reporters afterwards that "the aim of all of us, the prime minister's and all of us, is to secure, in this course of necessary changes to our educational system, the greatest possible consensus."

    Spiliopoulos also briefed Karamanlis on the inter-party committee report on the ?doping? issue and transparency in Greek sports as well as on the course of the dialogue concerning university reforms. He said that the objective is to proceed with reforms with the greatest consensus possible.

    Responding to the question on the draft dodgersâ issue, Spiliopoulos opined that the names should be made public.

    The prime minister also met with Parliament vice-president Sotiris Hatzigakis and discussed his suggestions aimed at upgrading parliament, as well as the Education reforms issue.

    Reforms in Education need to move ahead for realistic reasons as a result of globalization, and for social reasons as well, Hatzigakis told reporters after the meeting.

    Education reforms, he added, will benefit the weaker social strata and social groups such as students, the youth, farmers and the middle class.

    Referring to the upgrading of parliament, Hatzigakis suggested the establishment of a team that will deal with European issues given the fact that based on the subsidiarity principle in the European Constitution, the Greek parliament will be divided between Greece and Europe.
