Mr. Androulakis addressed the event for the presentation of the ballot paper of the faction “Actions for Macedonia” and wished success to the candidate for the regional governor of Central Macedonia, Christos Papastergiou.
“Our goal is for the Local Government to be an institution that serves the citizen, the society and not at the level of the Regions to have a system of power, which is the long arm of Mr. Mitsotakis’ staff state.
And this is a very crucial element for us for the October battle,” said Mr. Androulakis and continued: “Self-government for Self-Government. Self-government for Central Macedonia, for the Regions, on the basis of society. This is the institution that we invented, we served institutionally with legislative initiatives and this is how it should be. An institution next to the citizen and not next to the interests of the respective prime minister, the respective Maximos Palace. I want to wish good success to Christos Papastergiou, who has proven with his course to date that he is a man of work. A few words and a lot of work.
And our faction sees in his person a man who can serve the public interest and central Macedonia in the best possible way. Good luck, we will be by his side and we will do everything we can to get a very good result.”
The regional governor candidate Christos Papastergiou harshly criticized the Central Macedonia regional governor and re-candidate and noted: “The time has come for the upheaval and change in Central Macedonia as well.
Today, the day after September 3rd, we symbolically start our pre-election campaign and officially. I thank the president of PASOK, Nikos Androulakis, for his essential participation in this effort, his decisive contribution and support. We will win, we will take Central Macedonia where it belongs, we will leave the next generations the legacy they need”.
