PASOK leader George Papandreou prepares to give a TV interview after making a speech on Saturday at the summer congress of France’s opposition Socialist Party in the coastal city of La Rochelle in western France. The session focused on the economic crisis and Papandreou urged socialists to become a ‘force for change.’ ‘Behind the myth of the free market is a great concentration and unequal distribution of wealth and power among politicians and media outlets, which undermines democracy and holds institutions hostage,’ Papandreou told his audience.
