The political secretariat for the Coalition of the Left (Synaspismos) on Thursday convened to discuss the current political developments in the country.
An announcement issued after the meeting charged that the PASOK government "is collapsing under the weight of the failure of its policies and the massive social mobilisations across the country."
Synaspismos "is listening to protesters all over the country, who through their mobilisations are disputing the existing political system and the policies that are being implemented ... Under this prism, recourse to elections is the only option, which both (ruling) PASOK and (main opposition) New Democracy are afraid of," it concluded.
