SYRIZA Leader Tsipras Promises To Form New Govt From The Ground Up

Alexis Tsipras“The people’s majority will offer us the opportunity to govern for the next four years by giving a clear mandate to SYRIZA,” said party leader Alexis Tsipras in an interview to Sunday newspaper Real News.

“The Greek people understand that SYRIZA is the only party that wants and can do the necessary reforms and changes for the country and at the same time guarantee stability.”

Tsipras underlined that he will form the new government from the ground up, a government that will be concrete in the battle to implement the necessary reforms that the state needs.

“In this context, it is very important to have, and we will have, the society’s support as well as the Independent Greeks (ANEL) as a stable ally.”

He also expressed his determination to continue and intensify the battle against corruption after the elections.

He ruled out the possibility of a cooperation with New Democracy and accused Popular Unity leader Panagiotis Lafazanis that he decided to declare civil war, clarifying that it will be a one-side war.

  1. Don’t you just love this guy’s bravado? First he runs the country into the ground and now he tells all who will hear that they must vote for him first and then he’ll magically will fix up all of Greece’s problems. He takes none of the blame but instead points his finger at anyone in sight who isn’t seeing things his way. Yep, it’s all someone else’s fault. The ineptness and incompetence of the various groups of socialist ‘left overs’ is absolutely stunning. When one group try to fix anything another group will immediately nullify the fixers. ( the gold mine and immigrant debacles for instance are but prime examples.) The grand standing Varoufakis negotiating disaster with the EU is but another. It made Greece look like it was run by a bunch of Tsobaneedes and Xartopextes who were going to teach the EU a thing or two about Manilla game theory. The blatent ‘ in your face ‘ disrepect shown by the Varoufakis, Tsipras & Co was just absoluty breathtaking and initially stunned the Europeans beyond belief.
    Now Tsipras likes us to believe that he found the magic potion that will fix everything up? Yeah right! First these lefties obliterated any remaining trust the country has and now he asks the Greeks to put their trust in him instead? Yep, just go forward. Only forward, Comrades. (What ever you do…. Don’t look back at the disastrous predicament Greece now finds itself in.)
    Trust and respect above all are very much bankable commodities. When trust and respect disappear all relationships cease to exist. Just ask any banker, stockbroker or partner you may have.

  2. It’s a given that politicians are liars but Tsipras has taken lying to new levels. The swaggering, the posturing and the capacity to blame everyone while at the same denying all responsibility that we have been witnessing since January would be comical if the consequences weren’t so deadly for the Greek people.

  3. This guy will tell you he his planting an orange to grow “from the ground up” and later find out that it’s a lemon!

  4. Tsipras is a Marxist internationalist, NO ONE should be surprised that he sold out Greece to international bankers(Troika loansharks.)
