KKE: Mitsotakis,Tsipras Spat “A Familiar Scene of Disorientating Polarisation”

ATHENS — "Αfter the exclusion, in an irregular manner, of all the other political leaders, Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis and main opposition SYRIZA-Progressive Alliance leader Alexis Tsipras acted out the familiar scene of disorientating polarisation but also of mutual support," said a Communist Party of Greece (KKE) announcement on Friday, regarding the Mitsotakis-Tsipras' confrontation in parliament.

"On his part, Mitsotakis attempted to put the blame on the people and their justified protests over the unfolding of the pandemic and at the same time present SYRIZA as the organiser of the mobilisation, because it is quite simply a convenient and useful 'adversary' in the bipartisan game. Τsipras tried to present the police violence as an issue of obsessions and hot-headed, untrained policemen and not as a strategic choice that also served his own government. Both offered full backing for the institutional, legislative and operational framework of repression that they created together and which is expanding," added KKE.
