The conference of SYRIZA’s Central Committee was concluded with the re-election of Panagiotis Rigas as Central Committee Secretary and the constitution of the Political Secretariat, which will comprise the Political and the Executive Council.

During his speech in the first meeting of the newly formed Committee, Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras stressed that debt settlement is a contractual obligation of the partners. A critical period lies ahead, as definitive decisions are to be made regarding the debt issue and Greece’s entering in the Quantitative Easing (QE) program, said Tsipras, adding that Greece is entitled more than any other Eurozone country to be included in the ECB’s QE program.
