The president of the major opposition party, Alexis Tsipras, while addressing the plenary session of the parliamentary group of SYRIZA earlier today, underlined that his party is strongly against the policies that the Memorandum imposes on Greek society. Furthermore, he warned troika that his party will not countersign any new Memorandum. He quoted “You must search elsewhere for an accomplice to your crime against the Greek society.” Moreover, he said that “the cynical but nonetheless sincere admittance by troika, that the policy of the memorandum followed and imposed by the Greek coalition government, was full of omissions, is the best way to prove that our word is true.”

Meanwhile, he highlighted that the Greek Prime Minister, Antonis Samaras “could not cope with the difficulties and correspond to the demands of the Greek people. Mr. Samaras not only failed to admit that the policy his government follows is wrong, but he did not even find the courage to say something about it.”

In addition, the president of SYRIZA’s parliamentary group expressed his certainty that his party will soon come to power. “The Greek government is collapsing day by day. On the contrary the time is right for us to come to power. Within 2014, SYRIZA will be Greece’s next government. This is more than a certainty. We are all aware how difficult our task is and how much greater the responsibilities now are, but our party is more than capable of being successful. We are committed to the Greek people.”

He did not however, forget to criticize the behavior of some of the party’s MPs — Petros Tatsopoulos and Vasilis Diamantopoulos — by saying that “these behaviors have no place and are not consistent to the principles of the Left.” He made it crystal clear that such behaviors will no longer be tolerated.

Alexis Tsipras also made a reference to the Hellenic Postbank scandal by quoting that this is only the “tip of the iceberg.”

Last but not least, Tsipras stated that SYRIZA’s priority is to reconstruct an effective welfare state.

  1. “Reconstruct an effective welfare state.” How will you be able to do that? From where?
    Hellenic Postbank scandal is “tip of the iceberg.” You aren’t kidding. Corruption is the a National Sport in Greece among politicians and Board members of all banks.
    Mr. Tsipras, I don’t believe in your ideology -SYRIZA for what they stand for BUT I hope you WIN IT!
    From there forward EXIT THE EURO because the EU will never ever throw Greece out and neither will the corrupt coalition gov’t of thieves and liars Samaras-Venizelos want to exit. As long as you remain in the euro, the LAMOGIA are still stealing.
    From your mouth to God’s ears may you become the next government !

  2. BRAVO from SYRIZA speaking out about the Corrupt Gov’t and the Troika!
    I hope you WIN the next election and put all PASOK & ND guilty parties in jail !

  3. SYRIZA’s priority is to reconstruct an effective welfare state

    Hahahahaha

    PLEASE TAKE OVER AND TURN IT INTO GREEKASTAN. The rest of the world needs the laughter.

  4. Tsipras has never managed so much as a souvlaki stand. How the hell does he think he’s qualified to run a government? And there’s no corruption corruption on the left or on his party? Dream on….

  5. Yes the US is experiencing the same under Obama as he lacks experience and leadership. But it has taken Americans over five years to realize the mistake they made TWICE in electing and re-electing him. This demonstrates the effect the media has by anointing the next head of state and their reluctance to investigate the obvious because of political affiliation. .

  6. IF SYRIZA BECOMES THE NEW GOVERNMENT, THEN IT WILL BE THE END OF GREECE. SYRIZA POLICIES ARE RIDICULOUS AND DANGEROUS FOR GREECE AND ITS PEOPLE. MORE MORE MORE ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS WILL ARRIVE IN GREECE INCULDING ALBANIANS CRIMINALS AND FYROM WILL BE KNOWN AS MACEDONIA BY SYRIZA. THE AEGEAN SEA WILL BECOME TURKISH THANKS TO SYRIZA.. SYRIZA IS A VERY DANGEROUS PARTY, WE DO NOT NEED ANOTHER SOCIALIST PARTY LIKE SYRIZA WE NEED A MODERN AND YOUNG PARTY THAT HAVE NEW AND BRIGHT IDEAS FOR THE FUTURE OF GREECE.

  7. LOL.all the Greeks will become millionaires overnight with the Drachma,Tsipras is not lying.

  8. My view neither were true fiscal conservatives and the US Senate just passed another omnibus bill costing trillion plus. Somebody over there needs to get their hands around the spending problem or someone’s neck before it’s too late. As goes the US so goes the rest of the world economy.
