Vasso: "A politician should go to jail" - Venizelos:"Whoever thinks so, they should topple the government"!
PASOK MP Vasso Papandreou showed her anger after the meeting of the Parliamentary Labour Department of Finance meeting, which was called by Evangelos Venizelos in order to brief participants.
Mrs. Papandreou complained intensely about the bill tabled by the government in the House last week, so intensely that her voice resounded in the corridors of the Parliament building.
“The bill cannot pass as is”, cried Mrs. Papandreou. “Ordinary ‘beasts of burden’ cannot keep paying the bill”, she reportedly stated, and added that the phenomenon with individuals making under 7000 paying more than those who earn 100000 cannot continue.
Mrs. Papandreou caused a stir when she argued that PASOK has opened 77 agencies since taking up office, while the Troika has requested that agencies are shut down. The ruling party MP also requested that these 77 agencies be closed down, while she underlined that the tax returns of politicians must be checked concerning the last few decades.
In conclusion, Mrs. Papandreou stated that some politicians should be sent to jail!
The climate, however, was generally aggravated as four MPs, namely Katselis, Dalara, Kitzeris and Salayiannis, expressed strong disagreements with regards to Article 37 of the bill, related to labor, even creating the impression that they will not be voting for it.
Evangelos Venizelos returned to the meeting and his aversion, which came as a response to Mrs. Papandreou, was the following: “If you think that the government is ineffective or has no moral foundation, topple it!”. He added, “Otherwise, you give the impression that you disagree pointlessly, and you are exposed”…
The session was interrupted shortly before 15.30 and will continue shortly after 19.00.
