Kammenos says he will not meet with PASOK leader
AMNA--Independent Greeks party leader Panos Kammenos on Thursday said he will not accept PASOK leader Evangelos Venizelos' invitation to meet within the framework of the exploratory mandates.
Kammenos, speaking to private TV station Antenna, said that "the exploratory mandates should have been finished two days ago. The only thing that has a meaning now is the meeting (of the leaders of all the political parties elected to parliament in Sunday's elections) under the President of Republic Karolos Papoulias", adding that in order for a government to be formed Mr. Venizelos and New Democracy (ND) leader Antonis Samaras must take back their written commitments on the Memorandum. amna
He also stressed that the vote of tolerance proposal is only an ND-PASOK game because the combined SYRIZA, Independent Greeks and Democratic Left seats in parliament fall short of the minimum 120 that are needed for such a government.
