SYRIZA’s Spokesperson Criticises Government Over Measures to Deal with the Pandemic

ATHENS — Main opposition SYRIZA-Progressive Alliance's spokesperson Nassos Iliopoulos spoke about the government's "total lack of credibility" during an interview with Kontra Channel on Wednesday evening, strongly criticising its attitude towards the handling of the pandemic.

Iliopoulos stated that "the credibility of the government is non-existent" and specifically claimed that it had been saying for so long that it had allocated 24 billion euros to deal with coronavirus, while in the end, according to the State General Accounting Office, it had allocated only 4.6 billion euros."

"The Mitsotakis government does not offer any framework of health safety to students and teachers," he stated and expressed full support for the student mobilisations "because they defend public health, their own, that of their families and of society."


ANKARA — Turkey's central bank on Thursday lowered its key interest rate despite inflation surging to nearly 80% and making it difficult for people to buy what they need, falling in line with the unorthodox economic views of the country's president.
