PASOK leader Fofi Gennimata rejected on Monday an opening by Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras to cooperate after the end of Greece’s adjustment program in 2018, calling it a “demonstration of political cynicism”.
“Mr. Tsipras betrayed progressive citizens who trusted him. Now that he’s losing the ground under his feet, he appears as the ‘ruling Left’, calling in a paternalistic style, for progressive fronts. This is another show of political cynicism, for himself and the motley construct for the distribution of power,” she said in a statement.
In an interview with newspaper “Nea Selida” published on Sunday, Tsipras was quoted as saying that his party would be “truly pleased” if PASOK opened a dialogue “with the ruling Left, SYRIZA, on the prospect of forming a progressive government after the end of the memorandums. We will be there.”
