Health Minister Andreas Loverdos, addressing an event of the ruling PASOK party on Sunday's local government elections at a hotel in Thessaloniki on Thursday, said that the PASOK government and Prime Minister George Papandreou did things that have not been done before, they proved that they do not fear the political cost.

 

Referring to the course for the country's exit from the crisis, Loverdos stressed that "in my opinion, the country is at the beginning of the course, according to others who are more optimistic in the middle. Whoever says that we have covered the difficult and rough course is a liar, a demagogue, he is clouding the waters, he is turning the celebration of popular sovereignty into a carnival."
