The main opposition New Democracy party on Thursday unleashed more criticism over the funding and the method of ooperation of NGOs expected to be involved social work programmes.
In a statement, ND cadre Costas Markopoulos spoke of a "storm of revelations regarding one-man NGOs that will arrange hirings in the public sector." He also accused the government of preparing a provocative "private public sector" with PASOK's party para-state as the foundation.
"PASOK is confirming its past bad self, that swelled the public sector and burdened society," he said, adding that "transparency is going for a walk and meritocracy is being sacrificed."
