He declared SYRIZA can guarantee a ‘progressive government” that will heal the socio-economic wounds created by the government, which is ‘making the rich richer and the poor poorer’.

Amidst rampant talk of early elections, main opposition Syriza leader and former PM Alexis Tsipras in a major address at the Thessaloniki International Fair (TIF) this evening unveiled his party’s programme and lambasted government policy in a variety of areas, from management of the COVID-19 epidemic to economic, heath, and education policies.


As he stepped up to the podium, mega screens in the background flashed with neon signs with the words Freedom, Equality, Democracy, and Solidarity, along with images of healthcare workers, who occupied the first rows in the audience.


He declared that SYRIZA can guarantee a “strong progressive government” that will heal the socio-economic wounds created by the Mitsotakis government, which he accused of making the rich richer and the poor poorer.
