  • [01] Alavanos raps banks, gov't

    Radical Left Coalition (SYRIZA) Parliamentary group leader Alekos Alavanos, speaking in the Cretan city of Irakleio on Wednesday, charged that the prime minister's visit to the president would be useful "if there was a government that realised what was self-evident."

    Alavanos added that the government should not support bankers but "socially beneficial" banks, that it should not spend tax money in a huge wave of armaments and relevant expenditures, as he said.

    Meanwhile, Coalition of the Left (Synaspismos) party leader Alexis Tsipras toured the Evangelismos hospital in Athens on Wednesday and, addressing its staff, said the prime minister is calling for consensus while invoking the global economic crisis, but "in essence, he is calling for time to stay in power and for an alibi for his policy."

    Tsipras also spoke of a "social deficit", stressing that the percentage of GDP expenditures for health stands at 2.4 percent when the average in the European Union is 13.6 percent.
