  • [01] KKE leader: SYRIZA will follow European monopolies, interests

  • [01] KKE leader: SYRIZA will follow European monopolies, interests

    ANA - MPA --- The national election results express "the great discontent and anger of our people for the New Democracy and PASOK parties that sank the country into poverty and unemployment all these years of the economic crisis," Communist Party of Greece Secretary General Dimitris Koutsoumbas said on Sunday night.

    The result, he said, "also expresses, to a great degree, the false hope that the new government of the Radical Left Coalition (SYRIZA) can follow a people-friendly policy," Koutsoumbas said, and made particular mention of people who decided to vote for the KKE for the first time.

    "KKE believed and still believes that the Parliament's new composition and the formation of a SYRIZA government - whether by itself or by collaboration, and based on official statements and stances during and before the campaign period - will move along the same lines of an exclusively European path, of reduced demands, retreats and compromises and commitments to large capital, monopolies, the EU and NATO - with whatever that means for our people and homeland," Koutsoumbas said, adding that "it's the working class that will pay for that, once again."

    Koutsoumbas also commented on extreme-right Golden Dawn (Chryssi Avgi) coming in third, in votes, calling it "an extremely negative development in that a Nazi-friendly party, with specific criminal murderous actions over several years, created by the same mechanisms of the system that fight the interests of the people, still retains significant percentages in the electorate."

    "The KKE will intensify its efforts and initiatives in sharply rising labour, popular issues, through proposals to relieve the unemployed, working-class families, the self-employed, farmers and students," the party leader said. "In and out of Parliament, with the power granted us by the people, we will fight to reveal to the people any antipopular measures that are being planned," he pledged.
