On reference to the UN report on poverty Mr. Alananos said: "I believe that the government of New Democracy succeeded to bring Greece literally at the bottom of the barrel. The evidence was submitted to the European Union and Greece has the biggest poverty rate in working families in the UN. I want to congratulate Mr. Karamanlis, Mr. Alogoskoufis, Mrs. Petralia and I want to say that this road must close. We must find a new route for social protection, for a social state and for the protection of more vulnerable people of our country". Mr. Alavanos called on the government not to support the adjustment submitted by New Democracy parliamentary members of Chania prefecture regarding Crete KTEL (Public Bus Service).
