Greek’s Prime Minister to present bill to address ‘humanitarian crisis’


According to Press TV, Alexis Tsipras said in reference to the bill which is due to be presented on Monday “This is our foremost duty toward a society that has been severely tried for five years.”

He added “The bill will contain specific action to provide free power and food to thousands of families that need it, to make Greece once again a civilized country… So that no child is cold, no child faints from hunger or goes to school hungry.”

The premier vowed to facilitate the payment of tax debts for around 3.7 million Greeks and provide housing for 30,000 people.

Tsipras also reassured Greeks that his administration will not seek another bailout loan to cover the country’s massive debts.

He stated “The bailout agreements are over, both in form and in essence,” adding “Some people are betting on a third bailout in July… but we will disappoint them.”

His remarks came a day after fierce clashes erupted in the Greek capital city of Athens between riot police and hundreds of anti-austerity protesters, who were angry with Tsipras over what they called was reneging on his pre-election promises.
