  • [01] Alavanos addressesThessaloniki election rally

    The head of the Coalition of the Radical Left (SYRIZA) Alekos Alavanos said Friday evening that the real dilemma in the September 16 general elections "is not the one defined by the government but whether on September 17 we will still have the same miserable political setting or we have the landscape changed."

    "We can have, on September 17, a new political landscape, with politics returning in order to replace communication, with society returning to play a determinant role in developments. Because the weaker the possibilities of the two mainstream parties (ruling New Democracy-ND and main opposition PASOK) to implement their secret agendas and their anti-popular policies are, the stronger society will be ," Alavanos noted while addressing SYRIZA's main election rally in Thessaloniki, Macedonia.

    Waging a stinging attack against ND and PASOK, Alavanos said: "When bipartisan rule was strong, they (ND and PASOK) invoked the 'danger of the lost vote'. Now that the people are turning their backs on them, they have invented the 'danger of the lack of governance'."

    "The Left has a permanent cooperation with society," the SYRIZA leader said. "With unemployed people, with uninsured workers, with part-time workers. With the young generation. With all those who defend environment. We will not abandon this alliance, to become somebody's lifejacket or alibi."

    "The time of strong governments is over. The time of a strong society has come," Alavanos concluded.
