PM Mitsotakis calls Tsipras’ call for protest rallies ‘the height of irresponsibility’

The main opposition party’s invitation to protest rallies is an act of great irresponsibility, Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis said on Tuesday.

In a written statement, the PM said, “The official invitation by SYRIZA to citizen protest rallies in the midst of the pandemic is the height of irresponsibility. It undermines measures to limit the coronavirus’ dispersion, and it serves as an insult to our health staff struggling day and night in the National Health System.”

Society has reached its limits, and the duty of politicians is to provide solutions, not foment social friction, Mitsotakis said, calling on party leader Alexis Tsipras to consider his “catastrophic choices”.
