Iliopoulos: Greek PM Is Also Responsble for the Deadlock with the Vaccines

January 28, 2021

ATHENS — "Mr. Mitsotakis is also responsible for the deadlock created with the vaccines," SYRIZA-Progressive Alliance spokesperson Nassos Iliopoulos stated in an interview with ANT1 TV on Thursday.

He characterised very important the fact that the European Council at European Left and SYRIZA's initiative discussed and voted for the proposal for the lifting of the vaccines patent status adding that "the government has not yet assumed any essential initiative on the specific matter".

On the government's decision to ban gatherings of more that 100 people, Iliopoulos underlined that "if New Democracy did not want rallies to take place, as the one today, it should not have tabled such an important bill for the education in the midst of the lockdown and with the university schools closed" with which "students, academics and the majority of university rectors disagree".
