Communist Party of Greece (KKE) general secretary Aleka Papariga on Wednesday said “ruling PASOK and the main opposition New Democracy (ND) party have already reached a consensus but it is not evident,” adding that “those demanding a consensus simply want it to become more open”.  Speaking at a press conference in Thessaloniki, Papariga called the proposals for a government that will be made up of personalities as “opportunistic”, adding that individuals without a political identity are “opportunists”. 
She also accused both PASOK and ND of being largely responsible for the crisis, adding that they serve the interests of capitalist economy.

On the likelihood of snap elections, she stressed that they can create the preconditions for a step forward or for two steps back.
