Main opposition New Democracy (ND) party spokesman Yiannis Mihelakis on Thursday stated that the government’s actions show that it is not interested in reaching a consensus and used as an example ND legislative proposals rejected in parliament by the ruling PASOK.
Mihelakis stressed that “the major challenge faced by the government is coordination”, referring to contradictory statements made by government ministers.

ND development sector head Costis Hatzidakis, who was present in the press briefing, underlined the gradually deteriorating economic figures focusing on economic growth. He stressed that the country needs actions and reminded the recently unveiled ND proposals aimed at leading the country out of the crisis.

ND leader Antonis Samaras will visit the ONNED headquarters on Thursday afternoon to congratulate the ND youth organization for its good showing in the university student elections held on Wednesday.

Speaking to reporters, ONNED president Andreas Papamimikos underlined the notable increase of student participation in the voting process.
