  • Description

    IN GREECE, THE MAIN OPPOSITION PARTY IS LEADING A DRIVE TO FORCE NEW ELECTIONS. THE PARTY - MR. GEORGE PAPANDREOU'S CENTRE UNION - SAYS THE GOVERNMENT OF MR. KARAMANLIS CAME TO POWER AS A RESULT OF FRAUD AND VIOLENCE IN THE 1961 ELECTIONS.

    THE CAMPAIGN AGAINST THE GOVERNMENT WHICH HAS AN OVERWHELMING PARLIAMENTARY MAJORITY WAS LAUNCHED IN JANUARY, MR. PAPANDREOU, NOW CAMPAIGNING IN NORTHERN GREECE, YESTERDAY (SUNDAY) LED MASS RALLIES IN AGRINION AND NAFPAKTOS. HE SPOKE AGAIN OF HIS PARTY'S RELENTLESS CRITICISM OVER THE PAST YEAR OF THE GREEK ROYAL FAMILY, CALLED ON KING PAUL TO DISMISS MR. KARAMANLIS AND DEMANDED FREE ELECTIONS WITHOUT WHAT HE CALLED TERRORISM.

    "MARCH TOWARDS THE PEOPLE" IS THE SLOGAN OF THE CAMPAIGN AND MR. PAPANDREOU SAID IT WILL GO ON, USING ALL EFFECTIVE MEANS, UNTIL FINAL VICTORY.

    TWO WEEKS AGO, THE PARTY BOYCOTTED COURT AND PUBLIC CELEBRATIONS MARKING THE CENTENARY OF THE GREEK ROYAL DYNASTY.
