Tsipras: Greece Must Belong to All Greeks, Not Just the Wealthy and Powerful

ATHENS – Wage increases, price reductions, debt settlement, and a just state supporting citizens are the four main points in the SYRIZA-Progressive Alliance’s plan for governance, which its leader, Alexis Tsipras, presented on Wednesday.

The main opposition leader presented the ‘Contract for Change’ at the Technological Cultural Park of Lavrio, SE Attica, and said it was “a contract with society containing the commitments for a long-term government of progressive cooperation.”

The program was first presented by the party on Friday and includes interventions for the first 50 days of governance to manage the high cost of living.

“The time for great decisions is nearing,” Tsipras said, adding that the party is prepared to assume power with a radical and realistic program. “Our program is a contract for the change of people’s daily lives. […] Greece cannot belong just to the wealthy and powerful. Greece cannot be the property of a few families that share its wealth and assets among them. Greece can only belong to all Greeks,” he underlined.

Tsipras called on the Greek people to lead SYRIZA to an electoral victory that will result in a government of progressive collaboration. The party’s measures, he said, “are measures that will revive the economy, provide society with relief, and boost social cohesion.”


ATHENS - With one of his top aides threatening to quit over it and wide opposition in his party, Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis’ government is reportedly finalizing a bill to allow same-sex marriage in Greece.
