ΑΤΗΕΝS – “Yours is the worst government, at the worst moment,” main opposition SYRIZA-Progressive Alliance leader Alexis Tsipras said on Friday in parliament, during a debate requested by the opposition regarding the government’s handling of the pandemic. He called on the government to declare general elections as soon as possible.
“We beg you, don’t give yourselves and the people a hard time any longer. Hold [elections] earlier and rid the people of your ineptitude and arrogance,” he added.
He also spoke of “lax” institutional reflexes on the part of Parliament in holding the debate requested by his party on the “government’s responsibilities regarding the management of the pandemic”.
“Better late than never,” Tsipras said, underlining that this debate was taking place four months after the relevant question had been tabled in parliament, when the climate was dominated by the war in Ukraine and high prices.
