Kyriakos Mitsotakis: the country has become much stronger

Comparing Greece to four years ago, Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis noted that the country has become much stronger.

Mr. Mitsotakis made his announcement during a campaign tour of the southern district of Athens, the Athens Macedonian News Agency reported. According to the Prime Minister, Greece today is developing much faster than many other European economies. It is able to create a surplus and return it to society in the form of targeted support measures. The prime minister stated:

“Those who resort to political polarization, populism, extremes and conspiracy theories are usually those who have nothing to say and who have nothing to offer citizens to solve their real problems. Will Greece continue to move forward and prosper, or will the country return to a past that we have already forgotten?

According to Mitsotakis, this issue should become a key topic in the elections. Dimitris Karnavos, Mayor of Kallithea, responded by thanking the Prime Minister for building the Athens Metro to Kallithea:

“We are especially happy and proud that under your government, the subway extension to Kallithea, a project we have asked you about, has been announced.”

In 2019, Kyriakos Mitsotakis replaced Alexis Tsipras as prime minister. During the debt crisis, he was forced to sign agreements with creditors that became extremely painful for the country. Mitsotakis has repeatedly stated that he sets himself the task of getting the country out of the intrusive supervision of creditors. When asked about the possible conclusion of new similar memorandums, he urged them to turn to their predecessors. So, for example, in February 2022, he stated, quoted GreekReporter: “Others were prime ministers of memos. I am not the prime minister of memos.”
