  • [01] Voutsis: 2017 must be the year of the healing of the society's wounds

    "Our concern is the removal of inequalities, the change of the poverty climate and the relief of the weakest citizens, and we will continue to be working on this direction," the President of the Parliament Nikos Voutsis said on his message for the New Year.

    Voutsis wished that 2017 will be the year that the wounds of the society, as a result of the economic crisis, will be wounded.

    As he said, 2016 was a year full of challenges, not only for our country, but for the whole world.

    "Undoubtedly, the major political changes at international level, the economic crisis and the continuation of the war in the Middle East, have had an impact," Voutsis noted and added that "our people addresses these problems with dignity."

    [02] ND leader Mitsotakis' message to the Greeks of the Diaspora

    Main opposition New Democracy leader Kyriakos Mitsotakis send a message to the Greeks Abroad asking for the cooperation of all the Greeks to the national effort for the restoration of the country.

    "We have to unite our forces for the restoration of Greece. We create the political conditions. You, the Greeks of the Diaspora, can contribute to the effort for the reconstruction of the country," Mitsotakis said in an interview with the newspaper "The National Herald."

    "On the occasion of the dawning of the New Year, I express to you my best wishes with the assurance that 2017 is finally going to be the year for our Greece.

    As you know, I have also lived among you. So, I have firsthand knowledge of your progress and your commitment to the Greek ideals and traditions.

    I am aware of your selfless love, and how you ache and agonize about the situation in our Greece.

    I know that despite the repeated promises, you have not even been granted the right to vote from your country of residence, a right enjoyed by almost all other minorities.

    I repeat that this will change when New Democracy is in power.

    Greece will gain a responsible political leadership, which is also worthy of its migrant children.

    Dear friends, it is evident, unfortunately, that the Tsipras government is particularly damaging for our country.

    Ask yourself: is the situation in Greece now better than it was two years ago when Tsipras undertook the governance or is it worse?

    The answer is absolutely clear: it is much worse.

    Therefore, election time, which the country so desperately needs, will not be long in coming. And there is no doubt that the Greek people will trust us with the great responsibility of exiting our Greece from the crisis and defending our territorial integrity.

    With your valuable support, our country will change course, hope will return, and Greece will regain its sovereignty.

    All together, let's make 2017 the year for our Greece."
