PM Tsipras congratulates British Labour party leader Corbyn

Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras sent his congratulations on Friday to the leader of the Labour party Jeremy Corbyn, who he called friend, on the outcome of the British elections.

In a post on Twitter, Tsipras said that the outcome was exceptional and underlined that the left can inspire. He also noted that it is the voters and mostly the young people who determine the result of the elections and not the polls.

The prime minister, in three consecutive posts, wrote that neither the voters of neo-liberalism and austerity nor right-wing populism can give hope to the peoples.
