SYRIZA Spokesperson Criticises Government’s New Bankruptcy Code

October 22, 2020

ATHENS — Main opposition SYRIZA-Progressive Alliance spokesperson Nassos Iliopoulos harshly criticised the government's bill for the new bankruptcy code, speaking on "Atlas TV" in Thessaloniki late on Wednesday. He spoke of a bill "that the IMF did not even dare to bring in the darkest days of the financial crisis, and now the Mitsotakis government is bringing it, removing the protection of primary residence."

He said it was clearly the government's choice that "our country is proceeding unprotected in the second wave of the pandemic."

Ηe reiterated SYRIZA's request for the publication of the minutes of the scientific committee for the opening of schools, noting that "the same committee had said last year to open schools with 15 students per class," and that the opening of schools with 25 and 27 students per class, and 20,000 fewer teachers compared to last year, "is a government choice."

Regarding the developments in Greek-Turkish affairs, he said that "SYRIZA demands dynamic diplomatic moves, with the expansion to 12 nautical miles south and east of Crete, with sanctions on the table, with a positive Euro-Turkish agenda, and recourse to The Hague."
