The position of PASOK party spokesman was given to former Minister of Defense, Mr. Panos Beglitis.

Mr. Beglitis is a trusted person in PASOK, since he was Mr. Papandreou’s personal choice for a position in a sensitive ministry such as that of Defense, while he had worked flawlessly in the same ministry with current Finance Minister, Mr. Evangelos Venizelos.

In a simple statement, PASOK announced the assignment of Panos Beglitis to the post of the new spokesperson.

“By decision of PASOK President, George Papandreou, the spokesman of the Movement is Panos Beglitis”, the statement said.
