SYRIZA leader Alexis Tsipras expressed confidence on Thursday that Greeks will disprove the polls that show the two main contenders neck and neck and grant him a comfortable majority.
“I’m absolutely certain that the Greek people will once again disprove the messages of the polls which predict a derby,” Tsipras said during an election rally in the town of Agios Nikolaos, in Crete.
“We bled ourselves so as to stop our people for bleeding, because it was the promise we gave and we kept it until the end” he said and reiterated that the dilemma is whether the old establishment will govern or a government that struggles. “[Do you prefer] a government that will reveal the Lagarde list, or those who will cover it up?”
Tsipras said that he’s not asking for a second chance, but rather a chance to continue the first effort. “We didn’t have the opportunity to move ahead and complete the implementation of our work.”
