Iliopoulos: No Political Force Can Organise Or “Order” Social Reactions

ATHENS — "No political force can either organise or 'order' social reactions, they are spontaneous social choices, which we must understand and listen to," stated main opposition SYRIZA-Progressive Alliance spokesperson Nassos Iliopoulos while speaking on Friday to cnn.gr.

Iliopoulos claimed that the "reactions on Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis' social media accounts are another indication of the rage that exists in the society".

Finally, he underlined the need for an overall discussion about the media sector, adding that in this "difficult exercise we have to defend the freedom of speech , the right to quality information and at the same time to protect every citizen and social group from offensive and abusive speech".
