“We have left the difficult times behind us and now it is time for us to reap the fruits of our efforts to get the country out of the memoranda and the tough period of the crisis and surveillance,” Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras said on Saturday during his speech at the SYRIZA Central Committee.
“The presence of the Left in the government is a lasting, open challenge of historical dimensions”
The presence of the Left in the government is a lasting, open challenge of historical dimensions because the Left was and will always be identical to the constant struggle, the fight against injustice and exploitation,” Tsipras said and added: “We proved that what once seemed utopian, what three previous consecutive governments failed to do, was ultimately feasible. We have proven that there is a way out of the crisis by protecting the most vulnerable and keeping society upright. And from August 21 onwards, we turned a new page.”
“The measures announced at the TIF will soon come to Parliament”

The government will bring to Parliament the 2019 budget and it will be proved that it does not include measures but only offset measures, Tsipras said during his speech.
