George Papandreou's Interview to the Sunday Newspaper Elefterotypia

Elefterotypia, 6 February 2005

"Nea Demokratia is purposefully pursuing an ideology much akin to that on which 'the Berlusconi phenomenon' was built upon," noted the President of PASOK. "It has the responsibility to defend democracy every day... We are not all alike... We are not all 'on the take'... In Italy, the parallel judicial, journalistic and political crises led to 'the Berlusconi phenomenon'."
 
"Many institutions have remained behind the times in terms of a democratic perspective regarding growth and development," added Mr. Papandreou. "Every institution lacking the oxygen of democracy and transparency... will be faced with phenomena of corruption and attrition."
