Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras, in his speech at a special event organized by SYRIZA’s Culture department, referred to the European elections and its main controversy being the battle between progress and regression.

“We are before a crucial battle, not just electoral, nor just European, but I think it is a battle that has cultural features as it is a battle between progress and conservation and regression, here in our country as well as in Europe” said the Greek prime minister.

“Today, Larissa sends the message of a great political change. A message of unity and victory on the 26 May elections,” said ND President Kyriakos Mitsotakis, at a speech on the Post Office square in Larissa.

Referring to Alexis Tsipras, the ND president stated that “as long as he divides, I will unite because this is what Greek society demands.”
