KASTORIA – The government will always stand by the citizens and especially the weakest ones, Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis said on Monday while touring the area of Kastoria.
“The first round of elections will be the crucial one, this will finally send the message who should govern Greece for the next four years. And no vote should go to waste. I can look you in the eye and tell you that despite the great difficulties our main pre-election announcements were implemented,” he noted.
The prime minister accused main opposition SYRIZA-Progressive Alliance of choosing the path of division and said the government was not going to follow him.
Those who polarise and divide are the ones who have absolutely nothing to say to you about the problems citizens are facing, he said and added: They have neither plans for the future, nor a vision for Greece, nor can they imagine a strong and self-confident Greece that will be the protagonist in all the important developments that are taking place in Europe today.
“None of what we have achieved is taken for granted. We can easily imagine that another government would reverse all that we have achieved and we would go back to times that we want to forget once and for all. We won’t allow it. A self-reliant Greece equals a self-reliant New Democracy. This is our goal, we will achieve it,” the prime minister stressed.
BRUSSELS - Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis is heading for the European Council in Brussels on Thursday and Friday, where he will present his position calling for the start of a substantive discussion on the rules of economic governance on the level of European leaders, so that this important debate is not carried out exclusively by finance ministers.
