Gennimata Presents KINAL Plan for Pandemic, Urges Greek Govt to Adopt It

January 15, 2021

ATHENS — Opposition Movement for Change (KINAL) leader Fofi Gennimata presented her party's proposals for dealing with the pandemic and vaccinations in her address in Parliament on Friday, during the party leaders' debate on the response to the novel coronavirus.

Noting that these were specific, well thought out and formed a comprehensive plan, while she strongly criticised the government's "mistakes and omissions", which she said had cost human lives and urged the ruling party to adopt KINAL's proposals promptly, before the situation got out of hand.

Gennimata also stressed that there must be transparency over the order of priority for vaccinations and "no more mistakes" that undermined public health.

A vaccine in itself was not enough and also required a plan and action on all levels that would allow an easing of destructive lockdowns, saying that KINAL's aim was to "make society strong again… not keep it hostage but set it free."

She also indicated her party's backing for vaccinations and also vaccination certificates, saying that these should be in English in order to facilitate travel.
