Main opposition New Democracy (ND) leader Antonis Samaras addressed the last day of the party’s 8th congress in a southern Athens indoor stadium on Sunday by emphasising that ND’s goal is to relieve the country of the memorandum it signed with the EU and IMF.
“It (PASOK government) gave the keys away in signing the memorandum, which leads to a vicious cycle of recession and destruction,”
he told party delegates and office-holders.
“As long as we are tied to the memorandum the country will be subjected to huge sacrifices but with minimal results. We say that Greece can exit from the memorandum’s commitments and stand on its own powers, and to exploit its assets and comparative advantages,”
