SYRIZA: PM once again transferring responsibility to the citizens

Main opposition SYRIZA on Monday criticised the prime minister's appeal to the public to restrict its use of electricity at peak hours, saying that he was once again transferring responsibility to the citizens.

"We did not hear a word about the responsibility of the state or its plan for dealing with a weather phenomenon announced several days in advance," the party said, in response to the statements made by Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis after a meeting with the country's electricity grid suppliers and operators.

"Last week, when the president of SYRIZA-Progressive Alliance was listening to the experts and asking for a plan to be drawn up for an uninterrupted electricity supply during the heatwave, Maximos Mansion replied with sarcasm and arrogance. Now, too late and after power outtages have started in many parts of the country in the midst of an unprecedented heatwave, Mitsotakis has been forced to briefly interrupt his holidays to be seen attending an emergency meeting at ADMIE," the party said.

His presence there served only to once again shunt responsibility onto the citizens, the announcement added, apart from urging people to turn off lights and have cold showers to help the network hold up.
