Tsipras: Greece Will Remain in Eurozone, Bank Deposits Safe if SYRIZA Wins

tsiprasGreece will remain in the Eurozone, bank deposits are safe, negotiations with the troika will be based on the SYRIZA economic plan, were the key points opposition leader Alexis Tsipras announced during a lengthy television interview on Monday night.
Speaking to SKAI television, Tsipras touched on every issue and commented on the current situation regarding the political climate in Greece and the negotiations with the troika.
The opposition leader tried to assure the Greek public that if SYRIZA wins the snap elections and forms a leftist government, people’s bank deposits will be safe. He stressed that Greece will remain in the Eurozone and all negotiations with our international creditors will be done in this perspective. As for the negotiations, he said that they should take place after the elections when the new government will have a clear mandate to go to the talks with the country’s interests as a priority. He also said that the present government has no right to sign agreements that are binding and will further burden the Greek people.
Speaking of the troika, he said our creditors insist on the austerity measures because they want to exploit Greece’s natural resources, devaluate people’s wealth and create a cheap labor economic zone. At the same time, Tsipras believes the troika consider that the Samaras-Venizelos coalition is on the way out and that they are expendable.
On the subject of cooperation with other political powers after the elections, Tsipras said that the Independent Greeks (ANEL) are far away from SYRIZA in the ideological spectrum but they keep an honest “anti-memorandum” stance throughout, meaning that cooperation with them is not out of the question. He also said that The Greek Communist Party (KKE) will be forced give the vote of confidence to SYRIZA because they are for the people. He also said that they will cooperate with the Democratic Left, even if they don’t have any MPs in parliament.
