  • [01] Synaspismos CPC to convene Saturday

  • [01] Synaspismos CPC to convene Saturday

    The Central Political Committee of the Coalition of the Left, Movements and Ecology (Synaspismos) party will convene on Saturday in order to discuss the results of the September 16 general elections in the country.

    The meeting will be addressed by party president Alekos Alavanos and Nikos Hountis, central political committee secretary.

    Newly-elected deputies of the Coalition of the Radical Left (SYRIZA, which comprises Synaspismos and other left wing political groups) held their first meeting, shortly after a ceremony in which the new Parliament was sworn in. According to party leader Alekos Alavanos, the aim for SYRIZA's Parliamentary group during this session would be to become more useful and increase its impact on society.

    Alavanos said that SYRIZA had created a new model for conducting parliamentary opposition during the last Parliament because it not only criticised basic issues of government policy but was also "a force presenting programme positions and submitting proposals".

    He warned that the government had already given a foretaste of "the even more negative course it will take" and warned SYRIZA MPs that they would have to have to be aware of the major fronts on which the party would stand up and promote the positions of the Left and movements, such as the environment, social state, wages, high prices and social insurance reform.

    "We must be aware that apart from having the government as our opponent, we are also opposed by forces that are not physically present in the area where legislative work is done but which very often dictate and impose their positions and against which we must wage great battles," Alavanos said.

    As an example, he mentioned Greek banks that currently enjoyed profits unmatched elsewhere in Europe and at the same time imposed particularly harsh and painful terms on working people and lower income strata that had to be countered.
