Government is lagging behind the pandemic, says KINAL leader

The government is lagging behind the pandemic, said Movement For Change (KINAL) party leader Fofi Gennimata on Tuesday.

She was criticizing the televised announcement of Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis on the shutdown of the Attica retail sector and schools to the end of February.

In her statement, she said the government’s handling of the pandemic “has failed, by way of problematic measures.”

The government’s latest decisions “must be accompanied by daring support measures for workers and businesses,” Gennimata added, noting that “workers on suspended labor contacts cannot live on 534 euros for months on end, and business owners be forced to shut down permanently.”
