Syriza Urges Gov’t to Suspend Home Foreclosures & Auctions until National Elections

February 12, 2023

ATHENS – SYRIZA-Progressive Alliance urged the Greek government to issue a legislative act for the suspension of home foreclosures and auctions until the upcoming national elections, in an announcement on Saturday.

The main opposition party added that no home auctions were carried out during its tenure in government, and that this protective legislation was lifted for the first time by the current New Democracy government.

Moreover, Syriza noted, during its governance debt collections agencies were required to settle primary residence debts in agreed installments. New Democracy, it was added, made use of a 2003 law to allow private funds companies to foreclose and auction homes, ignoring Syriza’s 2015 legislation.


Despite being unable to prevent smugglers in Turkey from sending refugees and migrants to Greek islands and the northern land border along the Evros River, Greece has made significant progress in dealing with human trafficking, according to a report by the Council of Europe's Group of Experts on Action against Trafficking in Human Beings (GRETA).
