Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras underlined the government’s determination to protect the primary residence of Greece’s economically weaker citizens in his address to SYRIZA’s Political Secretariat, government sources said.

“The government is moving forward, implementing its commitments both to the partners but also to the Greek people, since the main commitment on the basis of which we again received the popular mandate was the protection of the weak and preservation of social cohesion,” he was quoted as saying during the Saturday meeting.

“In the same way that we kept our promise about Drapetsona, just as we legislated counter to the ‘interests’ for the media licences, in the same way we will protect the primary homes of the weak,” he added.

The meeting chaired by Tsipras was held on Saturday afternoon and focused mainly on the refugee crisis, with Alternate Minister for Migration Policy Yiannis Mouzalas briefing the Political Secretariat members on the latest developments.
