Iliopoulos: Tsipras to Announce a Comprehensive Proposal at TIF

September 17, 2021

ATHENS — A "comprehensive and coherent proposal for a different course of the country, in the direction of defending the social majority" will be presented by main opposition SYRIZA-Progressive Aliance leader Alexis Tsipras at the Thessaloniki International Fair (TIF), party spokesperson Nasos Iliopoulos said in an interview with public broadcaster ERT3 late on Thursday.

"Our intervention will move in two directions. The first one is the criticism of the current government. Things are clear: We have a prime minister incapable of defending the interests and the security of society. At the same time he has proved very capable of defending specific financial interests," Iliopoulos said.

Regarding the second axis of SYRIZA's intervention, which will concern "the proposal on how things can go differently," he pointed out the following key points: "The settlement and writing-off of a large part of the private debt created during the pandemic to keep businesses open and maintain jobs, raising the basic wage to 800 euros and developing a strong labour protection model while supporting the welfare state by strengthening, for example, the national health system and public education."
