SYRIZA-Progressive Alliance's spokesperson Alexis Charitsis on Saturday described the suspension of commercial enterprises in Thessaloniki, Kozani and Achaia as "another huge blow" to the government's credibility, "before they even open, just one day after the announcements for a horizontal opening of retail all over the country."

He accused the government that has no serious planning and that it proceeds to communication tricks. "Dangerous communication fireworks endanger public health, further deepen the crisis in the economy ane eventually exhaust the resilience of the suffering Greek society."
