Government wasted seven valuable months with negotiations, Potami leader says

The government’s negotiations with the institutions wasted valuable time, burdening the economy, Potami leader Stavros Theodorakis said in an interview with “Ta Nea” newspaper published on Saturday.

“Just as in 2015, the negotiations ended in a debacle for the government, causing great damage to the real economy […] We wasted seven valuable months,” he was quoted as saying.

“The issue is not whom the government will choose to extend mercy. The issue is to help the economy cover the lost ground of the seven-month delay. To lower taxes, strengthen productive forces. To help exports, lower unemployment, stop the brain drain,” he added.
