Government’s new measures a repeat of policies that led country to deep recession, say key SYRIZA MPs

The government’s measures announced on Monday are a repeat of policies that led the country to a deep recession, said three SYRIZA-Progressive Alliance party MPs in a joint statement on the day.

These measures also drove the country and its households to economic suffocation and eventual collapse, noted party MP responsible for financial issues Effie Achtsioglou, MP responsible for labor issues Mariliza Ksenogiannakopoulou and MP responsible for labor issues Alexis Charitsis.

“Unfortunately, no surprise in Monday’s announcements”, they said, and continued: “New Democracy insists on the same disastrous recipe for society, which has indebted households and also small and medium-sized busibesses beyond endurance, has flattened workers’ incomes and impoverished their families – constantly removing the prospect of recovery from view. This negative impact does not seem to be the concern of Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis and his non-existent success story”, they noted.
