Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis presented a stronger Greece to his colleagues on Sunday at the closing of the 14th Congress of his ruling New Democracy (ND) party noting that “these three last days was an opportunity to meet again and this meeting was for me a great boost of joy and optimism. “We are a party in constant movement” he said.

“Indeed, Greece is stronger than ever at all levels. Greece’s views count in Europe, we are playing a key role in a series of important developments” he pointed out.

Mitsotakis said that “the developments want Greece to be an international hub and energy producer” adding that “the country will develop this important strategic geopolitical advantage”.

The premier underlined that “there is no united society without a country ready at any moment to defend its national independence” adding that Greece got stronger referring to international relations and cooperation.

“Indeed, Greece is stronger than ever at all levels. Greece’s views count in Europe, we are playing a key role in a series of important developments” he pointed out.

Referring to the opposition parties and particularly to main opposition SYRIZA-Progressive Alliance he said that populism will play its last card in the coming period “it will be its most desperate attack, the worst and most filthy one. It will torpedo the country’s position in the midst of an unstable international environment” Mitsotakis said noting that “in the current conditions strong countries are the stable countries”.

Meanwhile main opposition SYRIZA-Progressive Alliance continued its attack on the Mitsotakis government with its leader Alexis Tsipras calling the government’s measures against the high rates in energy “delayed and insufficient” adding that “Mitsotakis’ (Kyriakos, Prime Minister) deceit will be revealed in the citizens’ electricity bills”.

Referring to the government’s measures he said that for a long time Mitsotakis insists on ignoring the reality, our proposals, the proposals of the people of the market and the society’s agony, however pointing out that if the government brings in parliament even a one-euro package of positive measures his party will vote it on the condition that he will not bring together, as he did many times in the past, a package with negative and harmful provisions.
