The president of SYRIZA-PS Stefanos Kasselakis, the press representative of PASOK-KINAL Thanasis Glavinas characterizes what he said about Kostas Simitis as vulgar populism against PASOK.
As the PASOK-KINAL official pointed out very critically, “Mr. Kasselakis seems not only to have not settled down ideologically in his 24 years, but he also ignores the recent history of the country”.
“Kostas Simitis starred in the major infrastructure projects, which changed the image of the country”
According to Thanasis Glavina, “the offer of the former prime minister and president of PASOK, Kostas Simitis, is recognized, even by his sworn ideological opponents”.
The press representative of PASOK-KINAL added that “the former prime minister played a leading role in the major infrastructure projects, which changed the image of the country, promoted deep reforms in the welfare state, achieved the accession of Cyprus to the EU and strengthened the rule of law and institutional counterweights with the establishment of the independent authorities, which of late the president of SYRIZA pretends to defend”.

“Paulos Polakis is Stefanos Kasselakis’ mentor”
Finally, the press representative of PASOK-KINAL also referred to… Pavlos Polakis saying that the president of SYRIZA-PS “by repeating the vulgar populism against PASOK, Mr. Kasselakis proves that Mr. Polakis is his mentor”.
It is recalled that Stefanos Kasselakis, answering a question about the reasons why he was not present at yesterday’s event for Costas Simitis, stated that “what business do I have with all those who have wasted so many billions of euros of the Greek people. We forget the entanglement of these years. It wasn’t just modernization. Let others take over the mantle of the country’s debt. SYRIZA certainly did not cause it. And not only that, but he also handled it with very painstaking memoranda.”
