Iliopoulos: SYRIZA’s Measures Are Fair and Feasible

September 20, 2022

ATHENS – The measures announced by main opposition SYRIZA-Progressive Alliance leader Alexis Tsipras at the Thessaloniki International Fair (TIF) are “fair and absolutely feasible”, party spokesperson Nasos Iliopoulos said in an interview on Tuesday with radio station “Radio North 98.0”.

He underlined that the party’s energy proposal follows the European trend, saying that “at the moment there is a wave of renationalisations all over Europe, in Germany, in France” and that “this is not only a question of energy security, it is also a question of national security.”

He added that this was more important for Greece “because we are in a sensitive region with geopolitical risks and the country needs to have energy tools.” But it was also rational, he noted, “when only in September the government spent 2 billion euros to contain prices, money it takes from citizens’ taxation in conditions of hyperinflation, at a time when with 340 million euros the state can acquire the 51% of PPC’s shares so that the PPC can have the regulatory role it should have in the market, for both households and businesses.”

Regarding the cost of the measures announced by the main opposition leader, he said that the measures have been estimated in detail and in particular that “our proposal on the expenditure side is 9.3 billion and on the revenue side 3.7 billion. So the final sum is 5.6 billion euros.”
