Opposition Coalition of the Radical Left (SYRIZA) Parliamentary group leader Alexis Tsipras on Friday said that he agrees with GENOP, the union representing Public Power Corp. SA employees, that “only economic assassins and terrorists are capable of taking tough economic measures like those implemented by the government.”
Speaking to reporters after his meeting with GENOP representatives, Tsipras stressed that the collection of the extraordinary surtax on real estate property via electricity bills is unconstitutional and will turn the PPC workers into tax collectors. He also underlined that according to the Constitution, taxes should be imposed on citizens based on their individual financial status.
