ATHENS – Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis on Tuesday reiterated that he intends to hold elections at the end of his government’s four-year term, in an interview with Capital.gr.
Mitsotakis also appealed to the opposition parties to avoid escalating the debate to such a degree that the country is drawn into an extended pre-election period of great intensity, which will only heighten the political confrontation to the point where it eventually leads the citizens to lose interest and not concern themselves with what is happening in politics.”
On the Greek-Turkish front, the prime minister pointed out, among other things, that highlighting Turkish expansionism in the Eastern Mediterranean to some extent draws comparisons with the Russian invasion of Ukraine, adding that “it is not possible today, it is unthinkable for anyone to discuss border changes. So any questioning of our national sovereignty, using any excuse, is completely unthinkable and condemnable from the beginning.”
Regarding the economy, Mitsotakis spoke of robust growth in 2022 and insisted that the government has tools to provide relief to households and businesses due to high inflation. He also offered assurances that there will be no problem regarding energy sufficiency in the country, even in the worst case scenario.
