Tsipras: Greek Gov’t Policy Risks Undoing SYRIZA Gains in Lowering Unemployment

ATHENS – Main opposition SYRIZA leader Alexis Tsipras on Monday announced a review of SYRIZA's programme, to update this in the face of the new challenges, and said the party intends to put pressure on the prime minister to "even now, heed the cries of workers" fearing for their jobs. Tsipras made the statements while launching a meeting of the party's executive secretariat, SYRIZA sources said

Tsipras said that things in the economy will get worse and more difficult every day, and noted that "there were no easy answers but there are policies with entirely different directions. Initiatives and public policies for the support of society, of employees and of small and medium-sized businesses or policies that use the crisis as an opportunity to restructure the economy and undermine labour."

He stressed that the biggest challenge of all was unemployment, "where the government's policies risked undoing in five months sets everything that SYRIZA had succeeded in doing to reduce it in five years".
