SYRIZA: Greece Should Submit an Official Proposal to the EU for Waving IP for Vaccines

ATHENS — Main opposition SYRIZA-Progressive Alliance, in an announcement on Thursday, said that the government should submit a request to the European Union for the lifting of vaccine patents.

"It would be better if the government and Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis, instead of making fools of themselves, were to find the courage, even at this late stage, to admit their mistake and even now submit an official proposal to the European Commission for the lifting of vaccine patents," the announcement said.

The main opposition party noted that its proposal at the start of 2021 for the lifting of patents on vaccines was tabled by SYRIZA-Progressive Alliance MEPs and MPs at both the European Parliament and the Council of Europe, and raised during a phone call between SYRIZA leader Alexis Tsipras and the head of the World Health Organisation Dr Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus. It also pointed out that "the proposal was finally officially adopted by the Council of Europe, the WHO and now the US government."
