  • [01] Tsipras: SYRIZA's seven immediate priorities

    ANA/MPA---SYRIZA leader Alexis Tsipras in his address on Saturday in Corinth referred to seven top priorities that his government will implement in order Greece to become a European country again. "The sealed lips have turned into clenched fists and the fear has changed camp" said Tsipras.

    "The hope is coming, the dignity, the democracy; Greece is ready to make the huge step. Nobody can stop this hope...the time has come for the memorandum to leave together with the politicians that supported it" he noted.

    Tsipras sternly attacked prime minister and New Democracy (ND) leader Antonis Samaras that he attempt with fear and mudslinging to stop SYRIZA's course.

    He referred to the terror attack in Paris saying that it concerns us all because it targeted the freedom of speech and the democracy.

    "We should not give in to the racism voices that are heard in Europe aiming to promote the extreme right agenda".

    Tsipras said that Samaras invests in the fear and in the black propaganda and he is the only one that speaks of a Grexit, given that the foreign media and the European institutional entities have 'buried' the issue and noted "after the recent developments Grexit has finished and the only thing left is the Samaras-exit".

    He expressed his certainty that the Greek people with give the parliamentary majority to SYRIZA and called the prime minister to abandon the scaremongering and to accept to take part in a TV debate with him.

    Finally, SYRIZA's seven priorities are according to Tsipras, free electricity to households that can't pay their bills, food allowance to 300,000 people, free healthcare, Christmas bonus to pensioners with low income, free transport card for the poor and abolition of the tax equalisation on heating oil and diesel.

    Moreover, he clarified "we do not want the governance in order to take the summer palace. We will never forget where we started and this is something you should always keep in mind".
