Iliopoulos: “We Are Once Again Entering a Period of Unpredictable Political Developments”

ATHENS — "We are once again entering a period of unpredictable political developments," main opposition SYRIZA-Progressive Alliance spokesperson Nassos Iliopoulos said on Wednesday in an interview with the newspaper "Efimerida Ton Syntakton", adding that a "demand for a new beginning is prevalent in society."

Iliopoulos stated that "SYRIZA has the backbone of the programme that answers the questions of society" against a government, as he said, "trapped in the bankrupt logic of alt right and Trumpism". He noted that "a new beginning means a secure life at work, in health, in universal access to social goods and in respect for democratic rights."

The SYRIZA spokesperson stressed that the government has lost control of the pandemic and the trust of society, described it as "dangerous" and claimed that "ruling New Democracy will not be afraid to bet on the strategy of tension."

He noted that "social resistance will widen the gaps in government sovereignty" and that "these resistances and the demand for a new beginning will be expressed both programmatically and as a whole politically in the near future."
