SYRIZA’s Iliopoulos: 2021 Will Be the Year of “Social Bankruptcy”

February 2, 2021

ATHENS — Unless the government immediately takes essential steps for the financial support of employees and enterprises, then "2021 will be a year of social bankruptcy", claimed main opposition SYRIZA-Progressive Alliance spokesperson Nassos Iliopoulos, speaking to the public radio station ERA on Tuesday.

Iliopoulos said that the goverment "quite simply does not believe in state spending," and was for this reason avoiding the hiring of additional staff to support the public health system, while he also accused it of "pushing a plan to loot society".

On the draft law on universities, Iliopoulos underlined that "with this intervention, 20,000 children that are preparing for the exams will not gain admission," as "the government is reducing the number of admissions in order to generate a clientele for the private colleges."

On the establishment of university police, especially, he said that such thing did not exist throughout Europe but only in Turkey under Erdogan.
