Re­turn on cards for Pa­pan­dreou?

Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

PA­SOK of­fi­cials yes­ter­day down­played com­ments by for­mer Prime Min­is­ter George Pa­pan­dreou which sug­gested he might soon seek a re­turn to front­line pol­i­tics.

Pa­pan­dreou has main­tained a rel­a­tively low pro­file as a back­bench PA­SOK MP since stand­ing down from of­fice in Novem­ber 2011, but in a speech late on Wed­nes­day he ar­gued that his gov­ern­ment was brought to a pre­ma­ture end. “I wish we had more time,” he said. “But life is full of twists and turns.”

“We want there to be to­geth­er­ness and calm in our party,” said PA­SOK spokesman Dim­itris Kary­dis, who ar­gued that many of Pa­pan­dreou’s ob­ser­va­tions about his time in power are in line with the views of cur­rent party leader and Deputy Prime Min­is­ter Evan­ge­los Venizelos.
