PASOK votes for congress participants

Under posters of Marx, Engels and Communist World War II resistance leader Aris Velouchiotis, a PASOK member casts her ballot in yesterday’s elections for the 5,000 delegates who will participate in next week’s sixth party Congress. PASOK has just over 300,000 registered members. Speaking at a press conference in Thessaloniki yesterday, main opposition New Democracy party leader Costas Karamanlis said he was certain he would win the next national elections. It is already clear that there are all types of corruption and black money games going on in this country. Southern Cyprus is a risk in terms of regional security, Ecevit told CNN Turk television. Anyway, it has directed terrorism at Turks for many years. Therefore, the European Union should think again before accepting the southern Cypriot government as a member.
