Former Greek Leader Files Censure Motion Over Blizzard Response

Former Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras filed a motion of censure against the government of Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis on Thursday, following a blizzard that left some Greeks stranded in the capital region with no power or heating for days.

“Every hour this government remains in power, four to five of our citizens end up losing their lives,” Tsipras said during a speech in the country’s plenary. “Mitsotakis left thousands of people at the mercy of bad weather, with roads closed, with no power, even today,” Tsipras said.
