The leader of SYRIZA Alexis Tsipras gave a speech in Larissa on Monday, where he slammed the coalition government and urged his audience to “send them a clear message” in the upcoming elections.
Mr. Tsipras dedicated a significant part of speech to the Baltakos scandal and was highly-critical of Prime Minister Antonis Samaras, even dubbing the scandal as “Samarasgate”. According to the opposition leader, the PM was fully aware and complicit in the scandal, while arguing that the current coalition government is “the most far-right government in decades”.
The opposition leader also commented on the upcoming visit of German Chancellor Angela Merkel in Athens on Friday that “a vote for Samaras and Venizelos is a vote for Merkel and Goldman Sachs«. Mr. Tsipras stressed the need for greater resolve in the Greek demands for German reparations and a revision of the bailout deals.
