SYRIZA: The Government Is Responsible for The Citizens’ Despair

ATHENS – “(Prime Minister Kyriakos) Mitsotakis and his ministers are not only responsible for the despair of the citizens but are also mocking them,” main opposition SYRIZA-Progressive Alliance said in a statement on Friday.

SYRIZA underlined that “more than 18 EU countries, most recently Ireland, Cyprus and Portugal, have reduced the fuel consumption tax for as long as the crisis continues and are containing fuel prices,” but in “Mr. Mitsotakis’s Greece, with gasoline prices over 2 euros and heating oil at 1.7 euros per litre, (Development and Investment Minister Adonis) Georgiadis claims that they are not reducing the Special Consumption Tax on fuel so as not to benefit those who drive a Porsche Cayenne!”

In addition, SYRIZA noted that (Environment and Energy Minister Kostas) Skrekas claims that “the reduction of the special consumption tax will not solve the problem of expensive fuel prices, but when asked why Cyprus has cheaper fuel, he answers that this is because it has less tax.”
