Tsipras: Greeks Pay the Cost of the Government Decisions

ATHENS – “Terrifying increases in energy tariffs have brought households and businesses to despair. In combination with the very large increases in basic food products, fuel and rents, this despair in many cases turns into frustation,” main opposition SYRIZA-Progressive Alliance leader Alexis Tsipras said on Tuesdau in a statement after his tour of the central market of Heraklion.

Tsipras said that “society pays the cost of the Mitsotakis government actions” and, in particular, “its decision for the privatization of PPC amidst an energy crisis, the violent de-lignification and the tolerance of the cartels that have made more than 1.5 billion profit in the last 8 months.”

The leader of the main opposition stated that “it is obvious that what the country needs now is a plan of extraordinary strengthening of the society and not of the cartels.

Tsipras also stressed: “We must put an end, a barrier to this descent and support society with a progressive government, to give perspective with social justice and social protection.”
