HERAKLION, Greece — A main opposition SYRIZA-Progressive Alliance delegation visited the quake- stricken area of Arkalochori on Tuesday, headed by the party's head for infrastructure and transport Nikos Pappas and the party's head for interior issues, Costas Zachariadis.

Pappas and Zachariadis visited the coordination centre that has been set up and were briefed by Climate Crisis and Civil Protection Minister Christos Stylianides and other officials on the current situation.

They also examined the damage to buildings at close hand and asked the government to show the necessary readiness.

"We are touring, at SYRIZA-Progressive Alliance leader Alexis Tsipras' orders, the stricken areas in order to see the progress of the phenomenon and the damage to private and public property. We were briefed by the political authority and the mayor and later we will meet with the regional governor of Crete. SYRIZA will stand by the people and will put pressure in a positive way to the government and will contribute the municipality and the region in any possible way," said Zachariadis.

On his part, Pappas thanked all the volunteers and the Red Cross for their assistance adding that compensation to those affected must be given very soon.
