Charitsis: The Gov’t Should Stop the Amateurisms and Show Seriousness

ATHENS — Political expediencies have taken precedence over the scientific approach within the government, stated main opposition SYRIZA spokesperson Alexis Charitsis on Tuesday, speaking to radio "Sto Kokkino". He said that there appeared to be disagreement between the political leadership and the scientific committee on the way COVID-19 should be handled and called on the government "to stop changing its mind and its amateurism and to show seriousness".

On the imminent cabinet reshuffle, Charitsis said "moves for communications purposes are not enough, we must see the reshuffle's political direction".

Asked to comment the Pissarides Commission report, Charitsis claimed that the government is attempting to re-introduce neoliberal policies that got "left out" of the austerity programme.

On Greek-Turkish relations, Charitsis underlined the need for "a serious attempt at dialogue with Turkey but not under a state of being threatened and with the use of all the available diplomatic means by the Greek government, as as the option to impose sanctions secured by the SYRIZA government."

He also said that Greece should develop a multidimensional and active foreign policy with initiatives while noting that Europe should assume its responsibilities and stop taking the role of an observer.


ATHENS - While Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis was in Washington to meet US President Joe Biden, rival parties insisted he must try to stop the planned sale of F-16 fighter jets to Turkey.
