  • [01] Samaras: Gov't 'desperate and dangerous'

    AMNA--Main opposition New Democracy (ND) leader Antonis Samaras warned that the PASOK government was "desperate and dangerous", and pledged that an ND government would do everything necessary to attain Greece's fiscal targets but with a different policy that would give hope and prospects to the country, addressing a meeting of the ND parliamentary group on Wednesday.

    Samaras also made a scathing personal attack on prime minister George Papandreou, and posed the question "what, finally is your goal, Mr. Papandreou, to break up Greece?"

    The main opposition leader accused Papandreou of "putting Greece at the center of a global storm, for his own personal interests", and warned that ND's battle, both inside and outside Greece, will be "unyielding and unifying".amna

    He described the vote of confidence from parliament asked by Papandreou, which will take place at midnight Friday after a three-day debate that opens Wednesday afternoon, as a "cry of agony by a prime minister who has lost every legitimacy in the society", and the referendum decided by the premier a "parody", proof of the "ultimate impasse", and "revelation of extreme irresponsibility".amna

    Samaras further warned that as long as the new bailout loan agreement for Greece decided at the eurozone summit on October 26 was subject to approval or disapproval by the referendum it would not be finalised, and so long as it was not finalised it could not be put to a referendum, and also warned of turbulence on the markets and in Europe over the next two months.
