Tsipras calls on ND leader to accept public debate
AMNA--Radical Left Coalition (SYRIZA) president Alexis Tsipras, addressing a rally in Elefsina on Wednesday evening, called on New Demcracy (ND) party leader Antonis Samaras to "stop hiding at last and appear and accept the public confrontation with him, without monologues prepared in advance."
He called on Samaras to appoint "whoever journalists he desires, whoever make him feel better, let him even appoint Mihelakis (ND's spokesman) provided that he accepts a live confrontation in a substantial and not standardised confrontation."amna
Tsipras appeared even more optimistic over the election victory of SYRIZA in the June 17 elections and, referring to the ND and PASOK parties, said "they are departing hand-in-hand, for the people to be left in peace and the country to change course," while expressing certainty over the victory of SYRIZA and stressing that "the people have turned the balance definitely."
