Tsipras Pledges to Support the Middle Class and the People of Labour

ATHENS – The dilemmas are clear for the election battle of May 21, main opposition SYRIZA leader Alexis Tsipras said on Sunday from Elefsina.

“Do we want the country to continue to sink or to change, do we want to be ruled by a government of arrogance or responsibility? Do we want honesty or corruption? Do we want democracy or nepotism? Justice everywhere or privileges for a few?” Tsipras asked.

Speaking at a gathering of citizens in the Elefsina Shopping Center, the leader of SYRIZA said that the strategy of the opponents is that “everyone is the same, things cannot change.”

“Well, no, we are not all the same … and yes, things can change”, he noted, adding that “on May 22 we can and we must have for the first time in the history of the country a government of cooperation of all progressive forces.”

He underlined that “a SYRIZA victory means an increase in wages, a reduction in prices, debt settlement and a fair, safe, efficient state next to the citizen.”

Tsipras focused on his commitments to support the middle class and the people of labour.

“We will come not to raise taxes, but to correct injustices, to support the working people, to support and relieve the middle class.”
