ATHENS — "The irresponsible Mr. Mitsotakis (Kyriakos, Prime Minister) waited for the last minute in order to proceed, even shyly, to requisitions," said in a TV statement on Friday SYRIZA-Progressive Alliance spokesperson Nassos Iliopoulos.
"On November 4 after SYRIZA leader Alexis Tsipras' visit to Thessaloniki, we have urged the government to requisition immediately the private clinics and to involve the military hospital. Instead of these, the government planned the transfer of patients to Athens," he underlined.
Even today, Iliopoulos said, "the government refuses the essential support of the National Health System with staff" adding that "according to OECD's data, Greece is ranked among the last countries in support measures for the health system and of the economy".
Mr. Mitsotakis' responsibilities are criminal, he said.
