The need for the country to move to an alternative to the Memoranda, austerity and neoliberalism, with a progressive and independent course and a new horizon of socialism over the failed recipes of the “existing”, said in an interview with the newspaper “Kathimerini”, Panagiotis Lafazanis. The Minister of Productive Reconstruction, Environment and Energy stresses that “Greece cannot continue to walk with disastrous doctrines nor with alarmism and the terrorism of an one way street and the supposed protection offered by foreign trusteeships, under which it experienced national and economic tragedies”.

Lafazanis notes that “at this time Greece not only needs some red lines that will ensure some critical achievements, although this is necessary as well”, but “urgently needs a positive and very consistent progressive program-package, which will place priority to the reduction of the debt, provide strong liquidity to the economy and development in a productive orientation”.
