SYRIZA Spokesperson Calls on Public to Vote for Party Leader

ATHENS – SYRIZA-Progressive Alliance spokesperson Nassos Iliopoulos called on the public to “boost the message of a political change and come vote for the party’s leader,” on Sunday during the party’s leadership election.

In statements to Mega TV, Iliopoulos said the party election – which opened nationally, also result in the election of the party’s Central Committee, and will run to 20:00 – said anyone could vote at the 1,000 party election centers nationally.

It is the first time the party’s members directly elect its Central Committee. While only members since March 21 may vote for the Committee, voting for party leadership is open to anyone as long as they register on election day, contributing 2 euros toward election costs.

“It may be the first time that an internal party process is so closely tied to central political developments,” Iliopoulos said, adding that “when the situation is as is, people do not care about internal party relationships but about how circumstances can change.” At this time, he said, “in Greece, 99% of increases in wholesale electricity prices are passed on to consumers; Austria, second in this, is at 46%.” These are factors that show citizens are being looted by the government of Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis, “who coordinates this looting against citizens.”

Mission…to Alonnisos, a TNH Documentary

O oceanic you sing and sail White on your body and yellow on your chimeneas For you're tired of the filthy waters of the harbors You who loved the distant Sporades You who lifted the tallest flags You who sail clear through the most dangerous caves Hail to you who let yourself be charmed by the sirens Hail to you for never having been afraid of the Symplegades (Andreas Empeirikos)   What traveler has not been fascinated by the Greek islands, drawn by the Sirens’ song of a traveler’s dreams? TNH and our video show ‘Mission’ marked the change of the season by transporting viewers into the heart of summer.
