Insurance and Private Individuals Will “Save Us”

In essence, the prime minister called climate change again, while not failing to defend the work of Costas Agorastos, the regional governor of Thessaly, who continues to support the new democracy, although it has been the target of great reactions, projects have been made in the region in the past years, however, “if everything is done correctly, it will be seen in the account and trial of justice”, As he said, “Thessaly is going on its back for decades.

What he won’t do

It should be noted that Kyriakos Mitsotakis spoke several “no’s” about an extraordinary TIF.

“I will not allow the country’s financial position to derail”, he said characteristically, confirming a “tight” budget that would not allow for many openings, while noting that he would not allow Greeks to be “divided again on a lie”. He blamed the opposition, as he spoke of “small-minded people” who wanted to turn a divine event into a “cry of the opposition”.

“I’m not worried about the cost of popular politics. I have a mandate for major reforms and that’s what I’m doing,” the prime minister said, and, at the start of his speech, mentioned pleasantries like “capturing investment”. The quality of our country after 14 years, the second place in growth we have achieved in Europe, record exporters, the lowest unemployment in the last 15 years” and so on, however, the data, as he said, forced him to start completely differently – from the tragedies of Evros and Thessaly, that is.

What… he didn’t tell us

He may have hinted at what the prime minister would not do, however, as he did not answer the “burning” questions about his government’s management of fires and floods, but contented himself with “dressed-up” generalities and “buzzwords”. “With fragments of poems…

Mr. Mitsotakis is his Bulgarian counterpart – Bulgaria is the country of honor in TIF.

Evros fence “all over” – “back” to safety

Although Kyriakos Mitsotakis has expressed the same readiness as the government for disaster recovery in Thessaly, Evros has also announced the recruitment of firefighters and foresters – without specifying the numbers – and procurement after major fires. Fire surveillance drones, heat sensors and cameras at danger points, security and fencing “ceremoniously” came back.

“The extension of the fence to Evros continues and will be completed,” the Prime Minister applauded, while responding to attacks from the opposition, who he personally accused of “failing the Labor government.” His government’s front-line security has announced that 2,500 police officers will be relieved of protecting public figures within the next month.

In effect, the prime minister’s security has been halved, which also applies to ministers, parliamentarians and officials, while businessmen and other actors will “fund their own security,” he said.

At the same time, he promised to speed up the administration of justice, postponing only one trial and digitizing the procedures (including measures that require recruitment, however, not only the fight against bureaucracy) , but also the execution of sentences, showing as an example that those sentenced to 15 years “will not be released in 5”.
