KKE General Secretary D.Koutsoumbas slams SYRIZA and New Democracy in Greek Parliament

Source: &

An off-the-agenda Parliament debate at the level of the political leaders on the issue "the phenomena of corruption and vested interests, their influence on the institutional and political system and how to deal with them" was held on the 10th of October 2016 on the plenum of parliament. The discussion took place at the proposal of the Prime Minister, A. Tsipras, as it is a "convenient" issue of discussion for the bourgeois parties ("left", "centre" and "right"), which seek to hide their convergence in terms of serving the anti-people strategy of capital by accusing each other over issues of management, corruption and "ethics".

During his speech, the General Secretary of the Communist Party of Greece (KKE) Dimitris Koutsoumbas unleashed an attack against both the SYRIZA-ANEL government and the major opposition of New Democracy for their hypocritical "cockfight" . Among other things he said:

"Upon what are you going to constrast?

Greek industrialists: "SYRIZA and New Democracy converge in their economic strategy"

Info taken from 'Rizospastis', 24/9/2016.

In it's latest weekly report, the Hellenic Federation of Enterprises (the union of the Greek industrialists) admit that the SYRIZA government and the right-wing, conservative opposition of New Democracy have no fundamental differences in their strategy for the country's economy. "The development objective is common, the means are different" says the report of SEV* thus openly acknowledging the convergence between SYRIZA and New Democracy in their strategy to serve the antipeople, antiworkers objectives and priorities of the Greek capital.

The industrialists evaluate the interventions of Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras and opposition leader Kyriakos Mitsotakis at the Thessaloniki International Fair earlier this month as "positive", as long as both seem to be fully aligned to the demands of the domestic capital for competitiveness and recovery of profits.

SYRIZA and New Democracy remain loyal to the interests of Greek industrialists

Both Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras and opposition leader Kyriakos Mitsotakis addressed the annual meeting of the Federation of Greek Industries (SEV), assuring the Capitalists about their commitment to the anti-worker, anti-people policy. PM and SYRIZA leader Tsipras invited the industrialists in a "fruitful and constructive dialogue" ahead of the second evaluation of the 3rd memorandum which, among other things, includes collective redundancies and a new law that will restrict the right of the labour unions to decide mass strikes.

New Democracy's Mitsotakis: The same old reactionary, neoliberal and anticommunist rhetoric

Some of the most reactionary theories of the bourgeoisie were used by New Democracy's leader Kyriakos Mitsotakis during his speech on the party's 10th congress. The congress of New Democracy (Nea Dimokratia) started on Friday in the midst of a controversy created by its president's decision to dismantle and re-organise the conservative party's youth-wing.

In his speech Mitsotakis, son of former Prime Minister Konstantinos Mitsotakis, once again promoted the idea of "private initiative" in economy saying among other things: "For us, development means private initiative, means investments, means to support the honest and conscionable businessmen, means the exculpation of profit and entrepreneurship". Of course, the New Democracy leader didn't say that the notion of private profit is the base of a policy that destroys peoples' rights for the sake of large corporations and monopolies.
