  • [01] Papandreou: A victory of democracy

    AMNA--PASOK party leader and former prime minister George Papandreou, speaking in Parliament on Tuesday evening during the ongoing debate on a vote of confidence for the new government, said that the new government under Lucas Papademos "is waging a war against the uncontrolled markets, the tax evaders, the vested interests, the country's establishments that in no way wanted the development of our overwhelming advantages to be promoted, wanting the clientele state to be prolonged." amna

    Papandreou termed the inter-party understanding a "victory of democracy" and expressed his irritation over the fact that specific forces refused to support the new government invoking ideological differences.

    "To those asking why the Greek people should experience sacrifices, I reply: In this war we were obliged to use whatever means we had. If these sacrifices had not taken place, we would not be standing and today Greece is standing. We would not have the solidarity of the other peoples."

    "If we appear weak, lacking boldness and phobic, not only will the painful sacrifices of the people be lost, but we shall see the exit from the euro, the savings of households will be lost and we shall lose a historic opportunity to place order in our home," Papandreou added. amna
