President of Republic Karolos Papoulias on Thursday received Popular Orthodox Rally (LA.O.S) leader George Karatzaferis at the presidential mansion.
Papoulias initially expressed his concerns over the ongoing political developments, stressing that "in this crucial period we must all be responsible, in order not to turn the economic crisis into a crisis of democracy".
On his part, Karatzaferis noted that "we are heading towards dangerous paths" and predicted that "the responsibility is collective, nobody will be excluded".

Moreover, he sharply criticised the leaderships of both mainstream parties, ruling PASOK and main opposition New Democracy, saying that the country's "salvation is too serious an issue for us to leave it in the hands of short-sighted political leaderships."
