ATHENS – Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis, who is paying a two-day visit to the region of Achaia, arrived in the town of Egio at 10:15 on Tuesday.
Representatives of local government, ruling New Democracy (ND) party deputies and ordinary citizens welcomed him to the town.
“The dilemma is: will we continue to move forward or will we turn back? Will we continue on a course of growth, which creates jobs, improves the citizens’ income and attracts investments or will we turn back to times that we want to forget for good: A time of referendums, closed banks and pensioners crying in front of ATMs,” Mitsotakis said while talking to citizens during the first stop on his tour.
Referring to a number of government initiatives relating to the economy, national issues, energy issues, to the creation of a social state and the support of the most vulnerable citizens, especially over the consecutive and simultaneous crises of the last three years, Mitsotakis added: “Do not take any of the things we have achieved for granted. One wrong choice can send us back and because the coming elections have a special character, I do not want you mixing up the first and second rounds. There is one election, a national election, and we will ain frin the first round to get the best possible result. Because a single-party majority for New Democracy in the parliament means a guarantee of stability” he said.
This stability, in turn, is an essential condition for growth and the country’s progress, he added.
At 19:30, the premier will speak at an event organised in Patras at “Royal Patras”.
On Wednesday at 10:00, Mitsotakis will visit the headquarters of the region of western Greece in Patras where he will present the comprehensive plan for Patras in 2030.
