Communist Party of Greece (KKE) Secretary General Aleka Papariga on Sunday accused the ruling PASOK party of using "terrorist argumentation" in arguing that the country cannot resist or show disobedience to European Union and NATO options since this would develop into a danger for the Greek people.
Papariga called on the Greek people to go to the polls as freely as possible and with the criterion of what benefits the ordinary working person and the working class family since "the only thing they have to fear is compliance with the present world order."
She accused both PASOK and the main opposition New Democracy party of using the "magic" word "redistribution" of income, adding that "both are conscientiously telling lies because, in essence, they are promising an increase in incomes of 2 percent at a time when the people are losing more than 15-20 percent due to the policy being applied".
