SYRIZA’s Iliopoulos: Governmennt’s Bill on Education Will Collapse

February 4, 2021

ATHENS — "The government's bill on education will collapse because it is standing against the Democracy and clearly supports the private interests," SYRIZA-Progressive Alliance spokesperson Nassos Iliopoulos said late on Wednesday speaking to ITV of Ioannina.

Iliopoulos claimed that the "implementation of the law means that 24,000 pupils that are preparing for the nationwide exams will be left outside universities" and "these children, if they can afford it, they can pay and go to a private college and take a certificate which the goverment equalises with the public university degrees."

In terms of the pandemic, Iliopoulos said that "the government has turned the vaccine into an alibi in order not to take substantial measures for the support of the public health."

Commenting on the "election scenarios that the government is constantly leaking" he said that they are due to the government's panic over the negative economic developments.
