Tsipras finally appears after Greece burned down

Featured Tsipras finally appears after Greece burned down

After four days and after the fire burned down Eastern Attica, Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras appeared and will visit the affected areas by helicopter.

The prime minister, over many days, as the fire destroyed forests and fortunes, was missing and only made a post on twitter.

According to a statement from the Prime Minister's office Mr. Tsipras, now that the fires have faded, will visit the burnt areas and meet with firefighters. Over the days firefighters battled with flames, there were complaints about how unprepared the state mechanism was, since there were many shortcomings in both human resources, technical means and inadequate coordination.
According to the press release from the Prime Minister's office after the visit of Alexis Tsipras to the burners, a ministerial meeting will take place. The result of the meeting is expected with interest, since the fires have now faded and the situation revealed that the mechanism was unprepared.

The opposition has been attacking the Prime Minister all these days, as Greece was been burned but he did not interrupt his holiday. At the same time, the Ministers for the Protection of Citizens and Justice, Nikos Toskas and Stavros Kontonis had undertaken the defense of the government, arguing that there was an organized plan to degrade the country.

Indeed, the absence of the prime minister all these days caused an "earthquake" on twitter with users creating a hashtag with the title #missingPrimeMinister.
