“We are realistic. We represent the part of the society that wants jobs, a better state, free economy, solidarity to those in need, security, quality schools and universities, a modern health system,” main opposition New Democracy (ND) leader Kyriakos Mitsotakis said in an interview with Eleftheria newspaper.
He explained that his tour in Thessaly is held in order to listen to the citizens’ problems and to send the message that “there is another way for the country to move forward. Greece has prospects, it can change, it can provide jobs again, better salaries and hope to its children as long as there is a plan and the volition to make the necessary reforms,” he underlined.
Referring to his party’s plan, he said: “A new growth model with lower taxes, lower spending, encouraging investments, changes and reforms in the state and economy that will make the lives of Greeks better. All Greeks and especially the weakest ones who are the bigger victims of the crisis.”
Mitsotakis attacked the government for the delays in the conclusion of the programme review which severely wounds the real economy.
