SYRIZA’s Iliopoulos Accuses Government of Not Accepting Its Responsibility

December 18, 2020

ΑΤΗΕΝS — "The government's responsibility for the tragedy we are experiencing is criminal. In just one and a half months, since the beginning of November, we have lost 3,322 human lives. And (Prime Minister Kyriakos) Mitsotakis insists on refusing to take the necessary measures for the protection of life and the support of the economy," main opposition SYRIZA-Progressive Alliance spokesperson Nassos Iliopoulos said late on Thursday in an interview with Kozani-based "Flash TV".

He also accused ruling New Democracy (ND) "of doing nothing to strengthen the region of Western Macedonia, which is plagued by both the pandemic and extremely high unemployment."

In fact, he described a visit by Citizen Protection Minister Michalis Chrisochoidis to the area as having "deeply provocative symbolism" that "wagged a finger at the citizens, treated a public health issue as a matter of public order, and refused to accept any responsibility for the failure of government policy on the coronavirus."

"The Mitsotakis government refuses to support hospitals, especially in northern Greece, where health personnel are on the verge of physical and mental collapse," he added.


ATHENS - Tourism Minister Vassilis Kikilias said that the next tourism campaign will focus on sustainable tourism, in statements to Le Monde newspaper.
