Government sources refute press reports claiming Migration Min Mouzalas is resigning

Government sources shot down press reports on Monday claiming Migration Policy Minister Yannis Mouzalas is resigning after he was allegedly criticized during a meeting of SYRIZA’s political secretariat on his handling of migration.

Speaking to the Athens-Macedonian News Agency (ANA), the sources said: “There’s no question of Migration Policy Minister Yannis Mouzalas resigning.”

Commenting later on the same issue, the ministry of migration said: “As part of SYRIZA’s intra-party democratic operation, different views were presented. Before the meeting completed, the minister left to participate in a scheduled meeting with the Vice President of the European Commission Frans Timmermans.”
