Tsipras Calls on PM Mitsotakis to Take Back Minimum University Admission Mark

ATHENS — Main opposition SYRIZA-Progressive Alliance leader Alexis Tsipras on Friday lashed out at Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis in parliament, accusing him of not coming to parliament to answer a question Tsipras has tabled three times regarding the new university admissions system.

Tsipras called on Mitsotakis to "take back the outrageous minimum admission mark" that blocks access to universities for 25,000 to 30,000 pupils, sacrificing them on the altar of promoting the interests of private fee-paying colleges.

He also criticised Mitsotakis' speech on Thursday at the event for the 40-year anniversary since Greece joined the EU, accusing him of delivering a divisive and 'shameless' speech in front of the European officials.
