During her tour she had the opportunity to discuss with traders and consumers the financial impasses they face from explosive accuracy and electricity bills, the decline in income and market movement as well as the delayed and inadequate measures she announced under her pressure. rapid deterioration of the government Mr. Mitsotakis.
After his tour, Mr. Tsipras made the following statement to the press:
“We have the worst government, the worst time for the country. In these difficult times, when we need social protection and support, we have a government that continues to eat big, pouring in public wealth, just as they did when they bankrupted the country.
They caught the thread again in 2015, when we pulled the country out of the water, leaving the debt settled, the public coffers strong, the country out of the memoranda, they came again to start the great feast of public wealth. With the blue golden boys, the privatizations of public utilities that are now paid for by the Greek citizen and consumer.
That this government is on the run is now commonly accepted. Even yesterday at the ND congress, the executives of the ruling party sent this message to Mr. Mitsotakis.
The point is, the sooner there is political change, the better for the country. Because every day that passes the poor become poorer and the rich richer and the public budget is burdened.
We therefore call on all citizens to send this message of political change. Mainly the progressive citizens, the democratic citizens, here from Crete, the cradle of the democratic struggles.
We call on them next Sunday to go to the polls of SYRIZA, to strengthen the SYRIZA Progressive Alliance, giving the message of political change. “To accelerate political developments and give perspective, breath, hope to the country with a progressive government.”
