  • [01] SYRIZA leader Tsipras: Elections now

    ANA/MPA---SYRIZA leader Alexis Tsipras on Sunday called for immediate general elections because, as he said, only a government with fresh mandate and negotiating power will be able to negotiate on European level, during his press conference at TIF (Thessaloniki International Fair).

    "The negotiation is of key importance, the country should negotiate and not leave the others to decide without us. With Samaras' (Antonis, prime minister) government our partners will decide for us and that's why we call for elections." he said

    On government's criticism for the measures he presented on Saturday in Thessaloniki he said "It is insulting for the people that suffer some to speak of benefits" adding that "ENFIA (Uniform Real Estate Ownership Tax) is a madhouse that has driven the people crazy because they do not have to pay. Is it a benefit to cancel this tax? " asked Tsipras.

    Moreover, Tsipras stated that SYRIZA's realistic and costed programme against the humanitarian crisis in Greece "can't become a negotiation issue with any lender".

    On Saturday evening Tsipras presented a "National Reconstruction Plan" with which SYRIZA will "replace the memorandum from the first days of its governance" adding that "this plan is specific, realistic and costed" at his address to a political rally at TIF's (Thessaloniki International Fair) Congress Hall.

    "We undertake the responsibility and we commit before the Greek people for a National Reconstruction Plan through which we will replace the memorandum, regardless of the outcome of the negotiations with the troika of Greece's lenders" said Tsipras adding that the plan is based on four pylons.
