Gennimata Accuses Government, Main Opposition of “Unnecessary Bickering”

November 12, 2020

ATHENS — "For the last nine months or so, our lives have been defined by the coronavirus. It forces us to live and work differently. To think and love differently. Unfortunately, it is obvious that one thing does not change, and that is the obsession of the government and main opposition with unnecessary bickering and creating a climate of tension, polarisation and division," opposition Movement for Change (KINAL) leader Fofi Gennimata said on Thursday, during her speech in Parliament.

"I am sending a message of solidarity to those who are fighting for their lives, in the ICUs, and the hospitals in general," Gennimata said, noting that "the first wave of the pandemic was a meeting with the unknown and we all supported the measures. We all stayed home, listening to the experts. We gave the government time to organise, on all levels, with the priority of strengthening and supporting the national health system."

"We proposed how the national health system can be supported, how the society can stay upright and the economy be kept alive," she added, and referred to a series of proposals made by KINAL during this period.


ATHENS - Changes of leadership in the armed forces and the fire brigade were decided during a meeting of the Government National Security Council (KYSEA) on Thursday, chaired by Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis.
