Tsipras: We have to meet the Greek people’s expectations

“I want to congratulate you and wish you the best,” said Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras in his opening speech at the the first cabinet meeting on Friday. “We must honour the support and trust the people offered to us twice in seven months. We are responsible to meet their expectations and to honour the choice to govern, to bring the necessary reforms and changes that the country needs in order to breathe,” he said and asked from everyone to work hard with collectiveness and altruism.

“Our responsibility is to restore the Greek people’s dignity so that in our 4-year term we will have achieved to create a Greece without the lenders’ supervision while protecting the weaker,” stressed Tsipras.
