Iliopoulos: Message Calling for Political Change Has Become Stronger

ATHENS – The message calling for political change has become stronger and SYRIZA is now reinforced and has more mass support, stated main opposition SYRIZA-Progressive Alliance spokesperson Nassos Iliopoulos on Monday.

In an interview with the national broadcaster ERT, Iliopoulos said that the result of Sunday’s leadership elections in the party was a vindication as over 150,000 citizens had taken part in the vote and SYRIZA had gained over 110,000 new members. “We are now certain that we will be the backbone of the next government,” he said.

Speaking to SKAI TV he said that the next general elections will be held with simple proportional representation so “no political party will be able to get an absolute majority,” while adding that “whoever believes in proportional representation believes in collaboration”.

O oceanic you sing and sail White on your body and yellow on your chimeneas For you're tired of the filthy waters of the harbors You who loved the distant Sporades You who lifted the tallest flags You who sail clear through the most dangerous caves Hail to you who let yourself be charmed by the sirens Hail to you for never having been afraid of the Symplegades (Andreas Empeirikos)   What traveler has not been fascinated by the Greek islands, drawn by the Sirens’ song of a traveler’s dreams? TNH and our video show ‘Mission’ marked the change of the season by transporting viewers into the heart of summer.
