Hope that Greece would finally achieve true convergence with its European Union partners was expressed by Coalition of the Left and Progress leader Nikos Constantopoulos on Monday, during his message for the New Year.
"The gap between ourselves and all that is happening around us is now apparent, as are the dead-ends of the policies being followed by the government."
"I would wish that the government, rather than confining itself to simply celebrating the important introduction of the euro, would also show the same interest for society and its problems, for the citizens and the day-to-day existence," he said.
