Iliopoulos: Key Condition for Progressive Gov’t Is SYRIZA’s Victory in the Elections

ATHENS – “One of the most dangerous governments of the country in the post-dictatorship era must immediately leave,” main opposition SYRIZA-Progressive Alliance spokesperson Nassos Iliopoulos stressed speaking late on Monday to Kontra Channel.

He criticised the government’s energy policy, accusing it of not being “interested in green transition, but in making business” adding that in the last nine months Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis is playing hide and seek with the energy companies’ excessive profits which, as he said, should be taxed.

Iliopoulos also accused the government of never making use of the measures available in the European Commission’s toolbox regarding the price hike such as the reduction of the special tax on fuel.

In terms of the political developments, he referred to “a live social poll in all the regions that party leader Alexis Tsipras is visiting over the last period which reveals a climate of political change”.

He also underlined that “elections with proportional representation mean a coalition government” noting that SYRIZA-Progressive Alliance clearly stated that “the day after the elections there should be a progressive government and the key condition for a progressive government is SYRIZA’s victory in the general elections”.
