Oikonomou: Motion of Censure a Move Without Real Substance

ATHENS – Government spokesperson Yiannis Oikonomou on Monday said the main opposition’s motion of censure, which was rejected by parliament late on Sunday night, was a “move without real substance, a censure without form”. Speaking at Monday’s press briefing, Economou dismissed the motion as a “firework” set off by SYRIZA-Progressive Alliance leader Alexis Tsipras “to defend himself against competition within and outside his party.”

At the same time, Oikonomou said the decision by JPMorgan & Chase to choose Greece as an investment destination was a vote of confidence in the Greek economy.

On the pandemic, he said that the number of new infections appeared to be stabilising, however, the pressure on the national health system remained. He repeated that those who have not yet made the decision to get vaccinated were placing themselves at incalculable risk, while reaffirming that the government is steadily focused on promoting both first and booster vaccinations.


ATHENS - Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis started his speech in the parliament on Tuesday with a reference to the devastating earthquakes in Turkey, the Greek aid sent to the neighbouring country but also the communication that both the President of the Hellenic Republic Katerina Sakellaropoulou and himself have had with Turkey's President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.
