  • [01] Parliament Vice-President: I will not vote for painful measures

    ANA/MPA---We are entering the final stretch with the worst public image," SYRIZA deputy and Parliament Vice President Alexis Mitropoulos told ANT1, stressing that at this phase "we have to tell our people honestly that we will implement a memorandum."

    Mitropoulos also expressed doubts whether this deal will be approved by the Parliament, adding that he will not vote for painful measures.

    "After ruling out the possibility of a rift, the government will have to tell its people that most memorandum laws will have to be implemented," he noted. "The government has opted for an agreement which will be harsh, so the government will implement painful measures, and the prime minister will have to give more details on how he will do it," he added.

    [02] Commemoration of Distomo village massacre

    The village of Distomo in central Greece commemorates the 71st anniversary of the WWII massacre on Wednesday, in the presence of Greek President Prokopis Pavlopoulos, Parliament President Zoi Konstantopoulou and Archbishop Ieronymos of Athens and All Greece Ieronymos.

    On June 10, 1944 nazi troops stormed the village and killed 218 men, women and children.

    Earlier, the mayors and representatives of cities and villages of Greece which suffered mass murders during WWII expressed in a meeting their will to continue maintaining the memory of the massacres "out of duty and honour to those assassinated."

    Their joint board named "Greek Holocausts" which claims war reparations said it will cooperate with the National Council and expressed its support for the relevant initiatives taken by the Parliament and the Greek government.
