Charitsis: Greek Gov’t Is Gambling with the Future of the Economy

ATHENS – Main opposition SYRIZA spokesperson Alexis Charitsis on Tuesday called the government's policy for the alleviating the economic crisis "ineffective and wrong".

Speaking on television, Charitsis said that it had now become "obvious that the government is acting without a plan and gambling with the future of the economy and society."

The government's inertia and lack of a plan are disastrous for workers, for small- and medium-sized enterprises and ultimately for the entire economy, he said.

He underlined that there was another way, which called for "frontloaded support measures for the economy, targeted interventions for the unemployed and those that are vulnerable and support for the many who are afraid of losing their jobs and of the future."


ATHENS - Surprised to suddenly discover that the European Union approved Turkey's request for a “Turkaegean” trademark covering its coast near Greek islands, Greece's New Democray government wants to find out how that happened.
