Tsipras: Government Decisions on Health, Schools Shows It Has Lost Control

September 24, 2020

ATHENS — The country faces a deep crisis, and the government of Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis "has lost control and has begun losing its stability," SYRIZA-Progressive Alliance leader Alexis Tsipras told his party on Thursday, speaking of "criminal decisions in issues of public health", the way schools reopened and in daily mass transportation crowding.

The main opposition leader told an expanded Syriza party meeting that its members should provide an alternative to the government's proposals and stand by citizens more actively.

The three fronts of focus, Tsipras noted, are health, education and culture. "Our opposition should be structured and universal, and our presence constant in these three fronts," he stresed. In addition, the party should "decide on specific rules and processes that will be observed by all," he said, "and provide sanctions for those who violate them."

"Our responsibility, of all of us, is not foremost to Syriza-Progressive Alliance, but to society, which is entering a deep crisis that is New Democracy's sole responsibility."



ATHENS - Sending mixed signals, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan is continuing to confound Greece's New Democracy government about his intentions after a NATO meeting in Madrid where he refused to meet Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis.
