(ANSAmed) - ATHENS, MARCH 15 - A new political party has been founded on Greece's political scene. Two former ministers of the Socialist government under Giorgos Papandreou, Economy Minister Luca Katseli and Justice Minister Haris Kastanidis, have announced the formation of a new centre-left party called ''Social Pact''. The leader of the new party will be Katseli, while Kastandis will be the chairman of the parliamentary group - that is, if they manage to get the necessary ten MPs to form an autonomous group in Parliament, as required by Greek Parliamentary regulations. ''We will move forward together for national independence, social justice, dignity and solidarity,'' Katseli said in presenting the new party, urging everyone to reverse the mentality which puts creditors above the population and markets above democracy.
