Gerapetritis: Motion of Censure Is Not Against the Gov’t But SYRIZA Itself

October 23, 2020

ATHENS — Main opposition SYRIZA motion of censure is not against the government but "its a motion of censure against itself and especially against its former Finance Minister Euclid Tsakalotos" underlined State Minister Giorgos Gerapetritis speaking to Alpha radio on Friday.

"It is a politically untimely motion of censure on a proposal that did not aim to put real pressure to the govenment. And I say this because on a day with multiple crises or major issues ongoing, as the pandemic, the Greek-Turkish relations, the court ruling on the sentences at Golden Dawn's trial, this particular day it choses to promote this issue and this is the political dimension of the problem" Gerapetritis said.

He said that it would be wise not to forget that the e-auctions were introduced in 2017 when SYRIZA was government and Tsakalotos boasted that the procedures were accelerated and we had 25,000 first residence auctions and in 2019 SYRIZA government abolished with a law the protection of the first home.

Asked if we will see in the future auction of working class homes, the minister replied emphatically "What we will not see is people in real need to have a housing problem and this is something I want to guarantee you.
