Iliopoulos: Reducing Admissions in State Universities Creates Customers for Private Colleges

January 22, 2021

ATHENS — "The government with its intervention in higher education that reduces the number of admissions to state universities is creating customers for the private colleges," stated main opposition SYRIZA-Progressive Alliance spokesperson Nassos Iliopoulos while speaking to the public broadcaster ERT on Friday.

On the establishment of a university police force, Iliopoulos said that the "real security problems in the universities should be resolved in a way that is in accordance with the Constitution, as well as with European reality. The university police force the government wants to create is contrary to both. The are no police within universities in Europe, only in Erdogan's Turkey."

Referring to the pandemic, he underlined that the government is betting everything on a vaccine without also taking action to substantially support the national health system.

On the economy, Iliopoulos said that "Greece recorded the worst recession in the eurozone in 2020 and this will worsen if the government does not take the appropriate measures."
