Mitsotakis: "We are OUR, we will build a NEW world"

“Ensuring sufficient energy for the country, as well as lower energy prices, are top priorities for the government,” Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis said on Tuesday while visiting the Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) terminal on Revitoussa Island.

“We are striving to achieve the lowest possible energy prices for consumers, households and businesses,” the prime minister said. He noted that the problem of soaring energy prices was imported and therefore demanded a joint European response, but promised that the government would continue to support energy consumers even if EU will not make a decision, through the subsidy scheme, which will continue in May.

“I want to reiterate that we are facing an unprecedented situation with the explosion of natural gas prices. This issue is imported. This is a problem that concerns the whole of Europe, and therefore I personally fought for a pan-European response to a problem that is not strictly national, but European,” said Mitsotakis.

In Revitussa, Mitsotakis shared smiles, selfies… and promises

And here we are, we hear “reducing energy prices”, but we do not see “reducing energy prices”. “Just some kind of holiday” in the style of Karabas Barabas. And this is all against the background of the fact that Greece has finally decided refuse from aggressive Russian gas, despite the fact that “the price of this will be high“.

Even a platform for citizens to submit subsidies for heating has not yet opened. Every day the government announces that this will happen… in the coming days, next week, in May…, June, December…

Meanwhile, as I heard on TV with reference to a very recent poll, 9 out of 10 Greeks very dissatisfied with electricity bills.

Because according to polls rating New Democracy is plummeting down and may soon reach the main opposition SYRIZA, it’s time for the prime minister to announce: “Early elections, friends!”.

Don’t ask me what this one weird Greek, 1 in 10…who is doing fine…so far, was thinking.
