Charitsis: Greeks Are Concerned about the Future

ATHENS – "Throughout the crisis, the opposition as a whole has adopted a responsible stance, supporting the measures proposed by the scientific committee in the health sector, thus contributing to our fellow citizens' compliance with the measures. But as far as the economy is concerned, the political forces can only criticise the inadequacy of the Mitsotakis government's measures to deal with the impending and unprecedented recession," main opposition SYRIZA spokesperson Alexis Charitsis said on Tuesday in an interview with Real Fm, noting that the video conferences of the main opposition with organisations of the business world and employees showed that citizens are fearful about the future.

"We have demanded from the outset the full coverage of workers' insurance and wage costs, we have proposed non-refundable financing to businesses and a safety net for the weakest," he said, adding that the government has not taken specific steps to support businesses and workers. "Forty-five days have passed and the ND government has chosen to reject the proposal instead of discussing it, but has not proposed anything similar," he added.
