The prime minister announced the start of the pre-election period for the European elections today from Galatsi.

Kyriakos Mitsotakis had a meeting with citizens in a cafe in the area, from where he emphasized that he does not tolerate the inflation of greed.

“The pre-election climate remains alive”

“The 2024 but it is also an election year, let’s not forget that. I have to tell you that I am speechless by your participation today, Saturday morning, in bad weather, but it seems that the pre-election mood remains alive, because we have European electionslet’s not forget that.

And these European elections have their own special value, because they take place 50 years after the founding of our party, the New Democracy. It is the faction that put Greece in Europe. It is the faction that kept Greece in Europe and it is the faction that now allows Greece to stand out in Europe.

That is why the citizens, when they vote in the European elections, will ask themselves which party and which is the leadership that can ultimately better represent Greece in Europe, keep the country’s footprint high and at the same time bring the money from Europe which our country is entitled to”, said the Prime Minister.

“I will not tolerate the inflation of greed”

“However, we have a lot of time and a lot of work between now and the European elections, friends. What I want to tell you today is that we will continue to fight, to face the problems, to deal with the “monster” of accuracy.

We will fight those who, by stepping on an existing global problem, take advantage of chronic market weaknesses and overcharge consumers.

I will not tolerate the inflation of greed. And I have said many times that the state has the power and the control mechanisms to put the market in order. And we will do this to continue to support the incomes of citizens, especially the most vulnerable, as we do all the time.

When the economy is doing well there is a surplus to support our weaker fellow citizens, because I will not tire of saying it: collective prosperity, according to our own ideology, must be converted into individual advantage.

So we have a lot of work ahead of us, in many areas. One thing to know: reforms will move forward but reforms are ultimately the progress that our country needs to make that great leap into the future, to become Europe everywhere. May all Greek women and all Greek men reap this progress” declared Kyriakos Mitsotakis.
