Minister of rural development Kostas Skandalidis asked to start the internal procedures in PASOK in order for "our unity to be put into actual foundations and not meaningless statements".
In the context of programmatic statements about the vote of confidence in Papademos’ government, the minister stated that "the times in which we live require new osmoses. Unity should be put into actual foundations, not meaningless proclamations."
He invited Papandreou to immediately present proposals and clear the horizon for the uplift of the political space. "To identify those processes where we put everything on the table," said Skandalidis, addressing the former prime minister.
