Tsipras: The Harshest Redistribution of Wealth from the Weak and the Middle Class to the Powerful of This Country

ATHENS – Main opposition SYRIZA-Progressive Alliance leader Alexis Tsipras on Wednesday spoke of scandals appearing everywhere like the heads of a “hydra” in an interview with “Sto Kokkino” radio, accusing the government of “embezzlement of the public wealth and the enrichment of the few and powerful”.

The main opposition leader underlined that this is happening “at a time when the largest and harshest redistribution of wealth from the weak and the middle class to the powerful of this country is taking place”. He said that on the occasion of the pandemic, there was a targeted effort to form a more flexible institutional content for the direct awarding of public contracts up to 7.5 billlion euros in closed competitions and “now we see scandals exploding one after the other that concern persons from the prime minister and ruling New Democracy’s close environment”.

Tsipras also spoke of “an unprecedented raid on public wealth”.
