Venizelos, Papandreou in dispute over PASOK finances

 

PASOK’s leader Evangelos Venizelos and the party’s former leader and ex premier George Papandreou were on Tuesday at the center of a dispute over the handling of PASOK’s finances in recent years amid claims by the former that excessive borrowing during the years of Papandreou’s party leadership has left the socialists broke.

Reports of a dispute emerged after a meeting between the two men on Tuesday which lasted 50 minutes. After the meeting both men issued separate statements.
