KKE: Statement regarding the government's cabinet reshuffle

Regarding the cabinet reshuffle of the Tsipras' government, the Press Office of the CC of the Communist Party of Greece (KKE) issued the following statement.

"Except from its communicative character, the reshuffle of the SYRIZA-ANEL government aims in creating a (governmental) form which, with bigger stability and as little as possible "wobbling", will implement completely the antipeople restructures and the committments of the 3rd memorandum.

The pursuit of blaming some persons and manipulations for the antipeople measures, which caused a generalized popular indignation and anger (e.g. social security issue), must not hide the total governmental responsibility and policy which these specific persons consistently served.

The government's cabinet reshuffle, a year after the elections, combined with the overall popular resentment and frustration for the SYRIZA-ANEL government, shows that the cabability of a government to mislead and trap, for a long time and in conditions of crisis and memorandums, working-popular forces has been limited. The question is the people to firmly turn their backs to those political powers which, through the governmental alternation, promise that the capitalist recovery to the benefit of the monopolies will bring vent and relief to the acute peoples' problems. The people must trust their own power and organise their counterattack, without delay, in order to put obstacles to the antipeople policy, targeting the real opponent, the capital and its authority.

In this struggle, a much more powerful KKE can be hope and prop."
