Gennimata Accuses Government of Failing to Deal with the Pandemic

ATHENS — The leader of the opposition party Movement for Change (KINAL) leader, Fofi Gennimata, on Friday accused the government of "failing on all levels" in its management of the pandemic, while addressing Parliament.

Gennimata said she is ready to proceed with a dialogue and cooperation in order to draft a national plan for combatting the pandemic. She also submitted a package of proposals.

"We insist and we are here. With our proposals, our programme, to reach an understanding and lead Greek society out of the ordeal together. And then we will have all the time and luxury to sharpen our political swords and disagree. Now is the time for a national battle. Now we are all judged," Gennimata stressed and called on the prime minister to decide if he can meet the expectations that demand national cooperation or continue to be the prime minister of "inadequacy, division and social injustice."

O oceanic you sing and sail White on your body and yellow on your chimeneas For you're tired of the filthy waters of the harbors You who loved the distant Sporades You who lifted the tallest flags You who sail clear through the most dangerous caves Hail to you who let yourself be charmed by the sirens Hail to you for never having been afraid of the Symplegades (Andreas Empeirikos)   What traveler has not been fascinated by the Greek islands, drawn by the Sirens’ song of a traveler’s dreams?
