Coalition of the Left and Progress leader Nikos Constantopoulos on Wednesday visited the Bank of Greece and held talks with Governor Loukas Papademos and addressed a gathering of employees, while noting that both the mainstream PASOK and New Democracy parties are parties of center-right convergence and consensus.
Constantopoulos said that if PASOK's leadership wished to avoid the possibility of retrogression on the country's political scene towards more conservative directions all it had to do was to amend the election law.
On the question of economic policy, Constantopoulos said there could be no processes of economic stability and development, fiscal restructuring and fair distribution of burdens without social cohesion and social justice.
