Communist Party of Greece (KKE) General Secretary Aleka Papariga on Monday had a meeting with Finance Minister Evangelos Venizelos in order to be briefed on planned privatisations and the recent decisions of the Eurozone summit for further financial assistance to Greece. "Our positions that working people will pay for the crisis are confirmed," Papariga said after the meeting, held at her own request.
"In our view there is a controlled default with partial depreciation and partial devaluation that will not work and we will have a new devaluation wave in coming years," she added.
She also underlined her parties strenuous objections to the privatisations, especially for strategic utilities, and of the sale of land.
Papariga said that her party did not support calls for a united "anti-Memorandum front" called for by other political forces and also disagreed with any kind of referendum, noting that the government was using this to entrap voters.
"Instead of a referendum, we seek elections," she said.
