SYRIZA Urges Government to Postpone Debate and Vote on the Education Bill

February 10, 2021

ATHENS — Main opposition SYRIZA-Progressive Alliance on Wednesday asked the government to postpone the debate and vote on the draft education bill, in order to avoid protest action and a rally scheduled on Wednesday in the midst of the pandemic.

In an announcement, SYRIZA called on the government to "put aside its obsessions, if only for the time being, and rise to the occasion by postponing the debate and vote on the draft bill on education, which justifiably causes reactions and mobilisations within the educational community."

"When 24,000 pupils are excluded from universities, when the terms of university entrance exams are changed in the midst of a year when lyceums never opened, and when instead of hiring teachers we have the hiring of 1,000 special guards, it goes without saying that there will be reactions," said the announcement.
