Tsipras: Greece Deserves a Responsible Government

ATHENS – “The country deserves a responsible government and not a government of excuses,” stated main opposition SYRIZA-Progressive Alliance leader Alexis Tsipras on Thursday, while touring the central market of Kalamaria (Thessaloniki). “Today we have in Greece a deep social crisis and the government and Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis are unable to deal with it,” he noted.

Referring to the support measures that the government announced on Thursday to tackle soaring inflation, he said that the Greek people will hardly feel them.

Tsipras said that Mitsotakis lied about the crisis appearing in the last 15-20 days due to the war in Ukraine. “This crisis has been brewing for months and he did not predict it, he did not move to face it, but has instead multiplied [its impact] through his choices,” the main opposition leader said.

He also spoke with shop owners and consumers about their problems.
