"To limit criticism to my face, my descent is cheap and insulting hundreds of thousands of citizens who have been trusting me all these years to serve them," says Potential Mayor of Athens, Kostas Bakoyannis, in an interview for l. "Daily".
"After 9 years of systematic work in the local administration, people know who I am," he noted, emphasizing: "I claim the trust of citizens, I do not require scheduling."
Mr. Bakoiannis thinks that there are many powers that are not used enough and emphasizes that "the culture of everyday life is exclusively the work of the municipality" and that, even if there is no jurisdiction, "I will close the ponds and let it open, I will change the lamp to the playground and let go . "
He repeated his opposition to simple proportional municipalities, adding that as a candidate he would present a costly operational broadcast asking for citizens' consent and, if elected, deposited in the first municipal council.
It is committed to the issue of drugs in favor of creating "closed areas of controlled and supervised use" and for the application of laws and rules for refugees and immigrants without marginalization.
Mr. Bakoiannis proposes the unification of the premises of the National Archaeological Museum with the historic building of the Polytechnic and the renovated hotel "Acropolis" in the "oasis of civilization in the center of Athens".
He explained that it refers to the "expansion of the Museum in Metsov, where architecture is today".
In the remarks that the Polytechnic "the heart of the state of Ekarchia" replied "at a certain point we must decide that we can not be hostages of several and extreme," adding that it will open a dialogue with the rectoral authorities and all involved parties "we will point out the historicity of a building that is also associated with the uprising from 1973. Finally, we take our responsibility. " This mixing will have huge benefits for public safety and economic resilience. "
As for the observation that "this was not done with the Syriza government," he replied, "you are not tired of saying" this is not possible. "Reconciliation with stagnation is resigning, obviously not easy, but we must fight everything together if we want to have revitalization in urban areas."
