Greek opposition leader slams SYRIZA-ANEL from Thessaloniki International Fair
“I ask from the Greeks to work all together to build a new contract of trust” said New Democracy (ND) leader Kyriakos Mitsotakis during his speech at the Congress Hall “Ioannis Vellidis” in the context of the 83rd Thessaloniki International Fair (TIF).
The main opposition leader sternly attacked the government saying that “This year’s TIF is held in the shadow of huge grief. It coincides with the sad epilogue of a failed government” said Mitsotakis.
He expressed his deep concern over the “the low birth rates” because “Greece is gradually getting older and is losing its financial dynamic” and warned that the danger for Greece has not passed yet. As long as the country does not borrow from the markets, its position is extremely unsecure” he said and called on the Greeks “to work all together in order to build a new trust contract”.
“In 12 months, I will come to TIF as prime minister” said Mitsotakis and referred to the six goals that “can become the meeting point of a broad social majority”.
The first goal is a society that offers opportunities for growth and prosperity to all, the second is a productive economy, a digital and innovative economy that will attract investments, the third an operational political system and an effective state. The fourth target is the education that prepares the future, the fifth a country that considers the rule of law and the safety as prerequisites of the democracy and finally, the sixth goal is a country that will not only belong to Europe and to the NATO but will also participate in their configuration by combining the national priorities with the community’s responsibilities and the alliance’s necessities.
