  • [01] Samaras addresses Women's Affairs Secretariat event

    Main opposition New Democracy (ND) leader Antonis Samaras, addressing, Wednesday evening, an event held by the party's Women's Affairs Secretariat for support for the candidacies of Vassilis Kikilias in the Attica region and Nikitas Kaklamanis in the Athens municipality, sent the message "no more measures."

    Samaras said "it can go no further, something must change, the policy of the memorandum (IMF/EU support mechanism) must change," adding that "the memorandum was not a one-way path and on the contrary the policies of the memorandum lead to a vicious circle of recession, economic paralysis and to even harsher measures that are merely being postponed in light of the local administration elections."

    He accused Prime Minister George Papandreou of "driving the situation to the memorandum and downgraded the country abroad" and that the ruling PASOK "has deceived the Greeks and now it is trying to blackmail them".

    He further called on citizens to send a message to the government through the local administration elections that a different path exists.

    "The opportunity is before us and must not be lost," Samaras stressed and added that "let everyone think how worse things will be if the government can claim tomorrow that its decisions are rewarded, if the government believes that the people agree with the padlocks, with the cutbacks in incomes, with the high cost of living, with unemployment."

    Samaras also pointed out that in the case the government is not decried, harsher measures will come on the day after the elections.

    "We are not simply and only against the memorandum, against the mist and the depression that it is spreading in the country, we are expressors of a different proposal that is condensed in the triptych growth-prospect-hope," the ND leader underlined.
