G. Koumoutsakos: Nothing will change with the new government

“Nothing will change with the new government,” main opposition New Democracy (ND) spokesman Giorgos Koumoutsakos on Monday said to statements to Athens-Macedonian News Agency’s radio station Praktorio 104.9 FM.

“When someone talks about investments in a country that is struggling to remain in the eurozone […], he should clarify whether he thinks or does not think or has renounced everything he said about the possibility of a parallel currency,” Koumoutsakos said commenting on the statements of the newly appointed Economy Minister Dimitris Papadimitriou.

“Papadimitriou has to prove a lot because in the past he said things similar to Varoufakis,” he added.
Referring to the appointment of Nikos Pappas to the Ministry of Digital Policy, he said that contrary to his depreciation in the public opinion, he is rewarded with a ministry and increased responsibilities.”

“What it remains to be seen is whether the minister can listen to the society and how committed he is towards certain people,” he noted.

On the TV licences, he stressed that the position of New Democracy is clear and will not change.
