  • Description

    General George Grivas, former EOKA leader in Cyprus, visited Larissa and Thessaly, Northern Greece, Nov. 27, to begin a political tour of Northern provinces, the first since his Nov 6 adoption as leader of the "Movement of National Recreation."
    Comprised of four political parties - the Liberals; National Union of Progressive Centre; Popular Social Party: and the Labour Agrarian Party - the M.N.R. accuses the Karamanlis Government of "offering farmers a worthless monthly pension in order to justify their new taxes." These taxes, they say, are really to cover other budgetary deficits.

    At Larissa, Grivas said his party's aim was to "free the people from the present corrupted Government, which is dangerous to national unity."
    On his return to Athens next week, Grivas will request an audience of King Paul.

    Until the next elections, the M.N.r. will have a Preliminary representation of 34 deputies.
