Tsipras: Pandemic a “Historic Turning Point” That Forces a Different View of Things

ATHENS — "Now that we are slowly overcoming our anxiety about whether we will live, our great concern is about how we will live, what we will face when we open the door," main opposition SYRIZA-Progressive Alliance leader Alexis Tsipras said on Thursday, addressing the 6th Delphi Economic Forum.

Pointing out that the pandemic is not over, since there are still people losing their lives, he stressed that "anxiety over the next day is becoming dominant."

"The pandemic is a historic turning point that forces governments and political forces to see things differently," he said.

"What has value today is that the dominant model [that sees the] constant reproduction of capitalism through crises that widen inequalities but enable an increase of profits by elites leading us to prosperity, is shutting down, failing and we are starting to think differently," he said.


ATHENS – After nine other political rivals of the former ruling Radical Left SYRIZA it said were involved in an alleged bribery scandal with the Swiss pharmaceutical company Novartis were cleared, PASOK Member of Parliament Andreas Loverdos won't face any charges either.
