Mitsotakis Says His Government Making People’s Lives Better

November 21, 2022

ATHENS  – Greeks and other residents are better off now because of his New Democracy government, Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis said as he positions himself for a re-election campaign in 2023 that’s already in a preliminary state.

He used Facebook to post a series of achievements from his government in the previous week and said that, “Whether you agree or disagree with this government, I promise you that every day we work to make the life of every citizen better.”

While there’s soaring inflation and electricity bills have doubled – his government paying 90 percent of those for beleaguered households – he said, that, “Every week we take stock of our work – we look at what we have achieved, what has changed for the better, what we could do better, what we need to improve – in short, we look at the lessons learnt. In this week’s debate we found again how difficult it is to communicate to the world the government work,” reported the state-run Athens-Macedonia News Agency AMNA.

He added: “And it makes sense. People have jobs, problems and stress, often they don’t have the mood or the time to go into details, especially if they don’t think they directly concern them.”

He has been stepping up his rhetoric in the face of the major opposition SYRIZA – whom he unseated in a rout in July, 2019 polls – continuing to take shots at him and his government which is leading up to 14 percent in surveys.
