"We met today in Kozani, in one of the areas that is being tested perhaps more than any other, from the coronavirus pandemic. We are here to talk closely with local stakeholders, and especially with the people of the National Health System, doctors and nurses, giving battle from the front line. To thank them for their daily struggle and to express our practical support and assistance. With our proposals and interventions, inside and outside Parliament.
Unfortunately, we see the government, especially in the second wave of the pandemic to work absolutely spasmodically, without any design, with constant regressions and inconsistencies. With his strategy "rave-xilone", with hard lockdown as a unique tool and without any plan for the safe opening of the country. After 1.018 vaccination centers announced to be still on paper, indicating poor planning and lack of preparation even in vaccinating the population. With the lack of transparency, the two measures and two weights in its decisions, selective determination, to make citizens lose confidence in government management.
And especially for the region of Kozani and Western Macedonia, in total, with its problems being real and independent of the severity of the pandemic, A comprehensive plan is now needed to support the local community and economy. A draft law, realistic, sustainable and feasible so that the area can remain socially dynamic, economically active and populous, in a better and more sustainable environment on the road to the post-lignite era.
