SYRIZA’s Iliopoulos Strongly Criticises Government Handling of the Pandemic

ATHENS — Main opposition SYRIZA spokesperson Nassos Iliopoulos, in an interview with Real FM on Thursday, said the government bears serious responsibilities for the tragic outcome in Greece on the healthcare but also the economic front of the pandemic.

"In two months and a week we have mourned 4,473 of our fellow human beings and the government is refusing to take measures to support the National Health System," he said.

Regarding the economic aspect of the pandemic, he accused the government "that instead of supporting small and medium-sized enterprises, it is handing out loans, and instead of supporting work, it is subsidising unemployment".

In the meantime, he reiterated that "it is the responsibility of the government to immediately proceed with strong and targeted public spending – something proposed by both the ECB and the IMF – to subsidise wages and businesses, and at the same time to promote a new private debt settlement scheme," in the midst of a pandemic, which will include a partial write-off of debt, and its repayment in installments.
