Iliopoulos: Gov’t Continuing to Bungle the Pandemic

ΑΤΗΕΝS — The "government of [Prime Minister Kyriakos] Mitsotakis is continuing to make a complete mess of the pandemic, without any plan or logic," stated main opposition SYRIZA-Progressive Alliance spokesperson Nassos Iliopoulos on Tuesday. Iliopoulos highlighted the fact that Digital Governance Minister Kyriakos Pierrakakis had told ANT1 TV on Tuesday morning that the end of SMS messages for movement was "very close", while at the same time as Development Minister Adonis Georgiadis was telling SKAI television that it was "not yet time" to dispense with them.

Iliopoulos said that after six months of a failed lockdown, citizens are daily watching ministers make contradictory statments, adding that "the SMS nonsense for someone to go for a walk has been discredited; the only thing it now accomplishes is to preserve a culture of control and should be abolished immediately." Unless, he added, "the government is trying to convince people that the epidemiological data permits this on May 15, when it will necessarily be abolished due to the opening of tourism".

The Greek tourism market is seeing a remarkable recovery and while it is most obvious in Athens – that’s where the media is – the powerful signs include the packed ferries and planes that connect with the islands of the South Aegean, with their iconic whitewashed houses that are what most people outside Greece think about when they contemplate visiting.
