Independent MP and head of the Democratic Alliance party Dora Bakoyannis on Thursday criticised both Prime Minister George Papandreou and main opposition New Democracy leader Antonis Samaras, saying they had proved themselves, "unable to rise to the occasion and accept their responsibilities toward the country".
Bakoyannis said that if Thursday's developments again failed to lead to national consensus, then this would confirm the end of the post-junta political system.
"For the birth of something new that will reorder the country, the people must speak and strictly evaluate the proposals and honesty of each person," she added.
