    [02] SYRIZA victory will signal a 'start in Greece's restoration,' its leader Alexis Tsipras asserts

    ANA-MPA - The victory of main opposition Radical Left Coalition (SYRIZA) in national elections will be "the start of a great national effort to save society and restore Greece," party leader Alexis Tsipras said in an opinion to be published in Sunday's Avgi newspaper, ahead of Monday's third and last parliamentary attempt to vote on a Greek president before national elections are called.

    "SYRIZA's victory will be the start of a great national effort to save society and restore Greece - a national effort with international repercussions, since our historical responsibility is to open the way for an alternative policy in Europe, turning a eurozone country from a neoliberal experiment to a model of social protection and growth," Tsipras said.

    The party will prove that "when peoples wish it, when they believe in their power, they can."

    Tsipras said that the party drew its strength from the support provided by a great social and political majority struggling for self-respect and justice, and said the first step would be to apply the programme he had detailed in Thessaloniki and resolve the humanitarian crisis in Greece. "This is non-negotiable," he stressed, "and does not create the need for new loans, nor will it come under discussion."

    On that basis, the main opposition leader said, "SYRIZA will pursue the rallying around it of as many powers from the people as possible, in order to acquire the majority in Parliament and proceed to implementing its programme." In any case, he added, "within this framework we will seek the widest possible agreements," and noted that the party is "fully aware that we are coming to unite, not separate - to build on the ruins of a looted society. That is why SYRIZA's government will not be a single-party government, it will be the government of the people."

    [03] Central and West Macedonia in below-zero temperatures, ice on roads

    ANA-MPA - Central and West Macedonia has been hit by below-freezing temperatures (Celsius), while it has been snowing since Friday night throughout the Florina prefecture; it is also currently snowing in the northern cities of Edessa, Kastoria and Kozani.

    Temperatures dropped to minus 5 (-5C) in Florina, -4C in Grevena, -3C in Kastoria and Kozani, -2C in Kilkis and -1C in Thessaloniki, the largest city in the north, with ice creating problems in sections of the Florina-Kastoria national highway and of the Florina-Kastoria road, where cars need chains to circulate.

    Egnatia Road circulation is proceeding as normal. In Thessaloniki, the sun is out although the strong winds earlier in the day lowered the temperature to sub-zero levels.
