George Papandreou’s Cyberspace Community Interview with Young People

6 May 2005

George Papandreou’s Cyberspace Community Interview with Young People
 
“We are building a strong party so that we may guarantee participation; to secure transparency in everything that is done; to challenge the thinking that says that the party belongs to someone or some group,” noted the President of PASOK when asked about the ideological makeup of PASOK.
 
“We don’t want a party dependent on clienteles relationships. The only guarantee for this is complete democracy and the participation of the citizen.”
 
“We have to address new challenges and new issues directly and expeditiously, bravely and with heart, so we can be sure to get the results that match our democratic values.”
 
“I want to see the youth of our party on the front lines of our efforts,” added Mr. Papandreou when asked about the role of the party’s youth. “But I want to see our youth free of various party mechanisms; the source of ideas, creativity and meritocracy. Young people are our hope; the hope for the party and our nation. We need to unleash the powers of our youth, give them the space they need and above all a voice.”
 
“We are not the party of one voice and one approach, but of exploration and dialogue. The role of young people here is paramount.”
