  • [01] SYRIZA slams coalition gov't for stance at EU summit

  • [01] SYRIZA slams coalition gov't for stance at EU summit

    Radical Left Coalition (SYRIZA) leader Alexis Tsipras on Saturday launched his first attack against the three-party coalition government after the elections, strongly criticising its stance at the European Union summit and demanding that the summit's decisions for Italy and Spain also apply for Greece.

    He also outlined his planned strategy as the main opposition party and his efforts to ensure that SYRIZA was politically and organisationally transformed in order to cope with its new role and conditions.

    Tsipras stressed that the government should state clearly that unless the same things that applied to Spain and Italy in terms of direct recapitalisation of their banks were also applied for Greece, the troika had no business coming to Athens. He also called on the government to present a veto to the European agreement if this was not the case.

    SYRIZA's leader stressed that the party had achieved a historic success in the June 17 elections and expressed his conviction that, had a leftist government been brought to power on June 17, the situation in Europe would now be entirely different.

    In terms of reorganising his party, Tsipras stressed that this must be a deeply political process that will enhance not only the political aspects of the party but also those relating to its characteristics as a movement and its international alliances.

    Tsipras said that a process of open meetings will lead to a national party conference in October and from this a National Council that will represent all the political and social forces that converge in this attempt. The National Council will also serve as the Central Organisational Committee of the founding conference of the new party to be held in spring 2013.
