PASOK leader interviewed live on AMNA web TV
AMNA--The only solution for Greece is a governance of national co-responsibility, PASOK leader Evangelos Venizelos said on Tuesday, speaking live on AMNA web TV, adding that all the political forces calling themselves pro-Europe must prove it by shouldering their responsibility.

Replying to viewers' questions submitted via social networks' websites, Venizelos cast blame on New Democracy (ND) of "blind management during the period 2007 to 2009", while he also turned his fire on SYRIZA which, he said, had collected 'criminal' PASOK cadres and was saying that "money exists".amna
On the ultra-right Chryssi Avghi (Golden Dawn) party, he said that the "absence of the state allows it to act as it does".amna
Venizelos noted that both Spain and Italy were implementing measures that Greece is also implementing, while on Germany's insistence on International Monetary Fund (IMF) involvement, he said that this was due to lack of confidence in the European Commission.amna
