Iliopoulos Accuses the Government of Inability to Deal with the Pandemic

December 22, 2021

ATHENS – “You are not asking a guilty person to manage the crime”, SYRIZA-Progressive Alliance spokesperson, Nassos Iliopoulos, said in an interview with radio station “Sto Kokkino 105.5”, regarding the government’s responsibilities in the pandemic and reiterating the party’s request for elections.

“Greece continues to be twice above the EU average in losses per million residents,” he stressed adding the government is totally uncapable of dealing with the new pandemic wave.

Speaking earlier on ANT1, he sharply criticized the government and the state of the economy, saying that “the country has on average the most expensive electricity prices.”

“We are one of the few countries that in the last two years have a stable minimum wage. Almost all the countries in the EU in ’20 and ’21 increased the minimum wage”, he stressed and added: “Greece is the only country in the EU that has lower minimum wage than we had in 2010.”


ATHENS - Still uncertain about the level of supplies this winter from Russia in the fallout over the invasion of Ukraine, Greece's gas utility DEPA signed a deal with French energy giant TotalEnergies to get more liquefied natural gas (LNG) in case.
