Syriza: Electricity bills are high because of Mitsotakis’ ‘favoritism to PPC’s golden boys’

Main opposition SYRIZA-Progressive Alliance accused Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis on Wednesday of being directly responsible for the high Public Power Corporation (PPC) bills to households, alleging it was due to his “favoritism”.

“Following the high rise in bills, profiteering, price fixing and hundred-thousand bonuses to PPC’s ‘golden boys’, Mr. Mitsotakis’ government is sending the bill to consumers, households, and businesses who are asked to shoulder the constantly higher and newer fees on electricity bills,” the party said in an announcement.

It added, “Many families are unable to pay their bills, the number of power cuts are multiplying, and the viability of businesses and the Greek economy’s competitive ability are under threat. Consumers are paying for Mr. Mitsotakis’ unfair choices, lack of planning and political favors.”
