Tsipras Accuses Government of Unprecedented Mess in tourism

CORFU, Greece — SYRIZA leader Alexis Tsipras, who is visiting Corfu, criticised the government and personally the prime minister for "lack of plan, misunderstanding, amateurism", resulting in an "unprecedented mess" in the resumption of tourism.

The opposition leader spoke of a "dramatic and tragic" picture on all major islands, of workers and businesses, blaming the government for the worsening situation. He called on the government and Mitsotakis "to assume their responsibilities, to support the labour market and businesses and, above all, to stop this incredible mess in relation to the resumption of tourism". Otherwise, he stressed, in the fall we will not be talking about supporting work and business, but about organizing meals."The image that one receives in all the tourist destinations of the country and especially in the big islands such as Corfu, is a dramatic image, a tragic image for the employees in the field of tourism, in all companies, but also in the entrepreneurs themselves", he said after his tour of the island's city centre.

He said that "the Mitsotakis government has aggravated this situation with misunderstanding, lack of planning, amateurism, the way it is dealing with the resumption of the tourist season."
