"To Vima" Newspaper-George Papandreou's Interview
To Vima, 6 June 2004
One week exactly before the European Parliament elections, the President of PASOK sent a clear message through his interview that he will come in direct confrontation with any mechanisms that will attempt to interfere with the party's renewal process.
"We need to change ourselves, along with our part," said Mr. Papandreou. "Renewal is what the Greek people have demanded from us. It is a demand of millions of members, voters and friends. We all must understand this."
Mr. Papandreou also defended his party's candidates for the European Parliament. "I believe our team of people is the best," he noted. "New Democracy has no vision for the country and it seems that all it can do is oppose PASOK."
