Syriza leader Alexis Tsipras Syriza leader Alexis Tsipras Syriza leader Alexis Tsipras lashed out against New Democracy during a meeting of the party’s Central Political Committee on Saturday, accusing them of not taking a stand against the neo-nazi Golden Dawn during a controversial incident in parliament on Friday.

Tsipras accused the ruling party of keeping equal distance from the main opposition, the parliamentary speakers and the “Hitler nostalgics”, during a clash between Syriza and Golden Dawn MPs, when "Heil Hitler" was heard three times in the chamber.

The main opposition leader also said it was the government’s and subsequently the prime minister’s fault that the “antiracism bill disappeared”. 

Tsipras made special mention to the civil mobilisation order issued by the government to prevent a teachers’ strike during the school-leaving exams, warning that if the government attempts anything similar in the future there will be a lasting political strike. “Those who think they can turn the country into an endless army camp should take this into account,” he said.

The Syriza leader also accused the government of “selling out the public property at a rapid rate”, adding that the prime minister’s visit to China is an attempt at turning “the whole country into an enormous Special Economic Zone”.
