Communist Party of Greece (KKE) Secretary General Aleka Papariga, addressing a rally of supporters in Omonia Square in central Athens on Thursday evening, stressed that elections are unavoidable even if the government gets a vote of confidence from Parliament and stressed that "it is the time of the responsibility of the people, of ideological and political awakening."
"We call for elections for the people to deal the first strong blow on the bourgeois political system," she said, adding that the weaker the government that results is the easier it will be for the people to avert the worse.
Papariga also announced an intensification of KKE's action on all fronts with the aim of the party's electoral backing, with a simultaneous invitation for rallying and common action, despite whatever differences, for the creation of a social, popular front.
