No support for the government - KKE
On Monday the 30th of March, at the request of the government, a discussion was held in Parliament, where the Prime Minister A. Tsipras tabled the issue that all the parties must support the government in its negotiations with the EU and IMF.
In response to the Prime Minister, Dimitris Koutsoumpas, the GS of the CC of the KKE told him: “Your “proud negotiation” is related to the interests of the ruling class who you aim to serve, just as the previous governments did. You are negotiating in order to secure more state money for the domestic monopoly groups.” D. Koutsoumpas denounced the fact that the government has not brought the agreement, which it came to in February with the EU, to parliament to be voted on. The reason it did not bring the agreement to be voted on in parliament was so that the people would not see such an agreement being jointly supported by the “left” party of SYRIZA, together with the parties of the previous government (ND-PASOK), the pro-EU party “Potami” etc.
In addition, The GS of the CC of the KKE, stressed that “The invitation to the USA to act as a transatlantic arbiter of the energy wealth of the country, and its presentation as a force guaranteeing stability, are a provocation to our people. Experience has shown that "solutions" of this nature not only undermine sovereign rights but lead our people to new hazards.”
D. Koutsoumpas underlined that this government is also concealing from the people the real reasons, that the reforms it is planning are part of SEV’s (The Hellenic Federation of Enterprise) long-term aims and are fixed directions of the EU. He stressed that the KKE has tabled a draft law for the abolition of the memoranda with the lenders and the related legislation, as well as other proposals for the immediate relief of the families of the popular strata, proposals which the governmental majority is sabotaging.
In his rejoinder to the discussion, D. Koutsoumpas noted amongst other things from the parliamentary podium: “Our people must organize their counterattack against the real opponents, there is no other path for our people. They must prepare for conflict and rupture with the EU and with capital and its power.”
