Tsipras: Gov’t “Neither Able Nor Willing to Manage Pandemic with Seriousness”

November 3, 2021

ATHENS – “It is now obvious that the Mitsotakis-Plevris-Georgiadis government is neither able nor willing to manage the pandemic with seriousness and responsibility,” stressed main opposition SYRIZA-Progressive Alliance leader Alexis Tsipras in a statement on Wednesday.

Tsipras also accused the government that “its only concern is the political cost and not human lives.”

“That’s why they never thought of imposing strict measures in professional and social areas where they do not wish to clash with their electoral clientele. That’s why they are today announcing measures with selective hesitancy, leaving the church out and the faithful unprotected. That is not the way to deal with a pandemic,” he underlined and warned that “the country is being led to yet another massive death toll, for which Kyriakos Mitsotakis is exclusively responsible.”

He said that his party will table an amendment in parliament on Wednesday that will require unvaccinated citizens to have negative test certificate in order to enter places of worship.

Finally, he attacked the prime minister once again, saying that “it is inconceivable to be counting votes at a time when we are all counting cases and victims.”


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.
