Samaras Criticizes Prime Minister's Statements

Main opposition New Democracy (ND) party leader Antonis Samaras criticised Prime Minister George Papandreou for what he said in a meeting with journalists at the Maximos Mansion at noon on Thursday.
Addressing deputies and cadres of the Attica basin, the ND leader termed Papandreou’s statements, in which the latter criticised the ND for the present state of the economy, “inconceivable”, stressing that the spreads increased from 130 units to 1000 during PASOK’s governance.
“Someone should tell Papandreou that the reason the spreads are at these levels at present is that the economic policy he is following is being disputed,” Samaras said.
As regards the prime minister’s commitment that he will go ahead with a factfinding commission for the economy, Samaras replied that he has no objection, but requested that the probe begin from 1981.
“We shall not place a barbed wire of time. Greece was not founded in 2004, nor did it end in 2009. Greece existed both before and after,” Samaras stressed.
The ND leader accused the ruling PASOK party of being unable to govern without factfinding commissions since, as he said, it needs a permanent disorientation of public opinion.
