The awkward meeting between Kasselakis and Snik - They did not know each other

Kasselakis, Snik

The president of SYRIZA, Stefanos Kasselakis, had a sudden but also awkward meeting with the well-known trapper, Snik, in Kifissia.

"Who are you? You look good," Snik told the SYRIZA leader.

Kasselakis also seemed to be unaware of who Snik is, with reporters saying: "He's a trapper" and himself adding: "The most famous".

"Which party are you from, mate?" the trapper asks Kasselakis, with the president of the opposition party answering, "From SYRIZA Progressive Alliance".

"I don't know that I've never voted," answered Snik; he asked you how he doesn't know Kasselakis, while about whether he intends to vote for him, he said, "I don't know, you look good, strong. I've never voted; I'll think about it."

Kasselakis: '1.63 bln euros in additional taxes on citizens in 2024, per state budget'

SYRIZA-Progressive Alliance leader Stefanos Kasselakis criticized Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis for his taxation policy and for not fulfilling past promises, in a video posted on the site and on his personal accounts on social media on Sunday.

In the video, Mitsotakis is shown announcing the bonuses to people with disabilities and low pensions, after which older clips are shown from parliament where he is criticizing the then Syriza government handing out bonuses "like Santa Claus" after taxing people heavily.

In addition, it shows Finance Minister Kostis Hatzidakis announcing that the 2024 state budget will bring in more revenues from taxes. Across the screen, Syriza comments: "1.63 billion euros in additional taxes on citizens. We want - and will work toward that - a just, stable taxation system. Without unpleasant and frequent surprises for citizens," while in the video Kasselakis also criticizes Mitsotakis for raising the government's outstanding debts, before inviting viewers to join Syriza through


Meanwhile, in a separate message, Syriza spokespersona Dora Avgeri commented on media publications of "an illegal nephrological center in which relatives of a New Democracy deputy appear to be partners." The Dimokratia newspaper report named the father and brother of Deputy Michalis Livanos as shareholders to the center, which it said does not have an official license to operate.

The report by Dimokratia newspaper prompted Avgeri to comment on "the mentality of ND deputies and officials of doing whatever they please, as long as they have access to power," and to call on the prime minister to "promptly expel his deputy, otherwise he will be personally responsible for a scandal that endangered public health."
