Alexis Tsipras wrapped up his tour of the southern Aegean island of Crete after laying a wreath at the monument of the WWII victims in Vianno where he announced that state deputy a veteran leftist politician and a leader of a campaign to claim WWII war reparations from Germany, will be a candidate MEP in the forthcoming European elections.

“It is our duty to pay homage and not forget that the European peoples live free and have defeated the spectre of intolerance, the dark ideology of fascism, because others sacrificed their lives and there were thousands of those who sacrificed their lives in our country,” he underlined.

Tsipras noted that more than 70 years since the end of WWII, Greece's demands for war reparations and the return of the forced occupation loan extracted from the country by the Nazi regime have yet to be met, and underlining that a government of the Left will claim this debt, he announced Glezos' candidacy in the European elections.
