    [02] SYN leader bashes gov't

    ANA-MPA/Coalition of the Left, Movements and Ecology (SYN) party leader Alexis Tsipras addressed the closing session of the party's Central Political Committee on Sunday.

    In both his addresses on Saturday and Sunday, Tsipras accused the government of danger-mongering, lying and extorting the people, and charged that prime minister George Papandreou and finance minister George Papaconstantinou were saying different things during the meeting of political party leaders chaired by President Papoulias on Friday and different things afterwards.ana-mpa

    On a proposal for setting up a government of technocrats, Tsipras said that it was not enough that the government has turned over the economy to the bankers, it was now preparing to turn over the people's mandate as well.ana-mpa

    Tsipras called Papandreou a panic-stricken prime minister who cannot and does not want to straighten his back and negotiate, adding that the same holds true for the "pathetic Mr. Papaconstantinou".
