  • [01] ND parliamentary group meeting Monday

    Main opposition New Democracy (ND) leader Antonis Samaras will chair a meeting of his party's parliamentary group shortly after noon on Monday in parliament.

    Samaras is expected to reiterate his position regarding the new government, clarifying that he supports the effort it will make for ratification by parliament of the October 26-27 eurozone summit decisions and for disbursement of the 6th tranche (8 billion euros) of the 110 billion euro EU-IMF bailout loan to Greece.

    He is also expected to reiterate that the participation of ND cadres in the new government does not mean an ND-PASO co-governance, while reiterating his demand for immediate general elections after the specific task of the transitional government headed by Lucas Papademos has been completed.

    [02] KKE: Make things difficult for gov't

    Shortening the new transitional government's term in office and strengthening the Communist Party of Greece (KKE) are the main political goals outlined in a proclamation by the KKE central committee released on the weekend.

    The text refers in length to the latest developments in Greece, which culminated in the formation of a cooperation government under Lucas Papademos, and warns that "an extremely hostile alliance against the people, a black front of the parties of the big capital, with the EU and the maestro" is being overtly formed.

    As for the participation of the Popular Orthodox Rally (LAOS) party in the new Cabinet and its backing of the cooperation government, the KKE said that this once again confirms that the social-democrat (PASOK) and neoliberal (New Democracy) parties are allies with the far-right because the latter is also a component of the bourgeois political system.

    The aim of the new government "is not to save the people but to subjugate them and lead them to an even worse massacre with the loan agreement and the bankruptcy Memorandum, the KKE said, adding that the new government was formed in order to serve and impose the interests of big capital in Greece and the other EU member countries.

    The KKE called on the working class and popular strata to give the government a hard time, with their struggle, and to take advantage of the difficulties the government will come upon in order to topple it as quickly as possible.
