SYRIZA criticises New Democracy MP’s ‘unacceptably cheap water rates’ comment

Main opposition SYRIZA officials on Thursday criticised New Democracy MP Babis Papadimitriou’s statement at a parliamentary committee, who called the current pricing of water ‘unacceptably cheap.’

Papadimitriou’s statement “suggests negative developments,” SYRIZA said.

SYRIZA added that “after the surges in electricity prices, ND is targeting yet another public good,” and commented that “everywhere it looks, New Democracy sees new areas of profitability for the few – and new burdens for households and businesses.”

“SYRIZA will, by all means, defend public goods for the benefit of the social majority and the economy,” the main opposition party underlined.
