Oikonomou: We Will Evaluate the Situation and Take Measures Accordingly

December 29, 2021

ATHENS – “I assume that the experts committee, at its meeting today, will propose bringing forward the measures that were supposed to be implemented as of next Monday,” government spokesperson Yiannis Oikonomou said on Wednesday in an interview with Skai TV.

The government spokesperson said that the “Omicron” variant brings about a situation that we have never encountered before.

“We will evaluate the data, the suggestions of the experts committee and the Health Minister who will make announcements on how we will proceed from tomorrow onwards,” he said.

Oikonomou added that the spike of cases along with common sense require everyone to make their own decisions and possibly change the plans on how we will spend the next days.

“We all know that decisions are not pleasant. We have made a huge effort all this time to save the Christmas season and we have succeeded at a large extent. We have exhausted every possibility. But we have to intervene, as the data have changed and the cases have multiplied very quickly and we are moving in that direction,” he added.


ATHENS - Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis welcomed the amendment tabled in parliament on Thursday about blocking convicted criminals from running in elections as formal or shadow heads of political party formations.
