Theodorikakos Slams Tsipras’ Attacks on PM as Illogical

September 8, 2020

ATHENS — "(Main opposition SYRIZA leader Alexis) Tsipras has [abandoned logical thinking] and has the immense audacity to call Kyriakos Mitsotakis a 'political fraud', as if the Greek prime minister is to blame for the global recession caused by the pandemic," Interior Minister Takis Theodorikakos said on Tuesday in an interview with SKAI radio and advised the leader of the main opposition "to start behaving more seriously".

Theodorikakos said Tsipras should "stop lying" about the hiring of cleaning staff in schools and explained that the process will be completed by the municipalities within the coming days, in order to hire 9,474 cleaners for schools, of which 5,000 will be full-time, compared with 3,700 up until last year.

Asked what will happen if there are additional needs, the interior minister was clear: "Where additional measures are needed, the municipalities will take them. They are fully supported by this government, both financially and administratively. Threfore Tsipras must stop the doom-mongering. Especially these days that the country is facing these issues with Turkey, he should be more serious."
