  • [01] Tsipras: 'It is time to plan the Leftist governance strategy'

  • [01] Tsipras: 'It is time to plan the Leftist governance strategy'

    Addressing SYRIZA's Political Secretariat on Tuesday, Prime Minister and SYRIZA leader Alexis Tsipras proposed that party's Central Committee be convened in the near future in order to set a date for SYRIZA's 2nd Congress at the end of September, party sources said.

    Tsipras said that the intervening time will be valuable in order to draw up a long-term strategic plan for the party and the country, with a five-year "horizon" outlining at the party's goals for Greece in 2021.

    The prime minister's proposed that the congress focus on five main goals, including an "opening" of the party to society and its grassroots electorate base and the major reforms and changes that a "Leftist governance strategy" for the country needs.

    He also referred to a reorganisation of the party, noting the need for well-planned work in every region of the country, with committees in every prefecture to expand the party's electoral base and tap into the vital forces of local communities.

    "Forming an open, modern, democratic party of the Left is a necessary prerequisite for the political and social changes that SYRIZA wants to bring to the country," Tsipras said, noting that the party's members must have a real say and the 'trends' must operate as idea flows and not as mechanisms.

    The party must also decide "what kind of Greece we want to create," he added, what productive and growth model will be followed and what reforms need to be made to the Constitution, the political system, rights and culture.
