Main opposition New Democracy party spokesman Yiannis Mihelakis, commenting Monday on press claims concerning Prime Minister George Papandreou's address at next month's Thessaloniki International Fair (TIF), said Thessaloniki is a destination the premier "wants to avoid".
Mihelakis said Thessaloniki "...only brings unpleasant memories to mind: He (Papandreou) promised there before the (2009) election that money exists (for state spending); he gave false promises to citizens there, claiming an exit from the crisis; he committed himself there to development projects that would change the city."
The ND spokesman also referred to a "collapsing government" that "views TIF as a nightmare."
