    Greece -

    Society

    Weather has taken a turn for the worst throughout Greece, with low temperatures, showers, storms and gale-force winds in the Aegean. Snow chains are also necessary in several parts of the national road network.

    It has been snowing in Karpenisi, western Greece, since Friday morning, while drivers travelling in the provincial road network of the Evrytania Prefecture are advised to use snow chains.

    Snow chains are also necessary for those traveling in central and northern Greece.

    Showers are expected in the coming hours in the Attica basin, while weather in Thessaloniki, northern Greece, is expected to be milder.

    [02] Confidence Vote to the Left

    Greece -

    Politics

    Opening the conference of his party, SYN (Coalition of the Radical Left) President Alexis Tsipras requested a confidence vote to the "Left's programme, a programme capable of finding a way out of the crisis." Taking the fall of the domination of the two-party political system for granted, he said that new hopes were born in the souls of the working people and the youth for a radical change in the political affairs and their fives. Tsipras blasted Greece's two major political parties, the Conservatives (ND) and the Socialists (PASOK) and urged the Greek Communist Party (KKE) to "unveil the plan that will change things, unless they insist that only socialism can change things."

    The SYN President underlined, "Amid a global collapse of the neo-liberal financial growth model, which was built upon greed and over-accumulation of profits, we feel we are experience the end of an era."

    Touching on the governing party of ND, Alexis Tsipras accused it of constantly hiding behind the stability pact and the surveillance threat to save its key choices. "At the same time, it is collapsing, weighed down by the people's dissatisfaction, the major scandals and mismanagement. It has run its course and the people's expectations and patient have run out," added he.

    Shifting his attention to PASOK, Tsipras slammed it for having nothing new to add. "It lacks a counterproposal and that only thing it studiously does is to avoid taking a clear stand on major conflicts," stressed the SYN President.
