AMNA - The election results signalled the end of the two-party system, with New Democracy and PASOK alternating in power, and ushered in a transitional phase during which there would be an attempt to create a new political scene with new parties, Communist Party of Greece (KKE) General Secretary Aleka Papariga said on the night of the elections held in Greece on Sunday.
She warned that there would be an attempt to pre-empt the rising popular radicalism that will lead to a true reversal benefiting the people, either through new figures of a centre-right direction or a new social democracy centred on SYRIZA, with some form of coalition government arising to stop a majority trend for change to emerge.
Papariga called on members of her party but also working class voters to join in KKE's struggle in workplaces, neighbourhoods and places of learning and not be taken in by the "disguising" of the political system that would be attempted over the next months.
KKE's general secretary also noted that the election result was encouraging in that it showed that the movement for real overthrow was "maturing" in the consciousness of the popular classes and that this movement would not be far from KKE's political proposal.
Replying to a proposal made by SYRIZA for an attempt to cooperate to form a leftist government, Papariga made it clear that she would stick to her position before the elections and refuse to cooperate in this attempt, refusing to compromise KKE's positions and carry out the radical shift this would entail.
