Gov’t a hostage of SYRIZA’s declarations, says ND VP Hatzidakis

The government is a hostage of SYRIZA’s declarations, stated main opposition New Democracy (ND) Vice President Kostis Hatzidakis, speaking to Athens Macedonian News Agency radio ‘Praktoreio 104.9FM’ on Thursday.

Commenting on the course of the economy, Hatzidakis noted that “when you are in recession you can’t claim that the economy is doing well, when your banking system is problematic and holds the world record for non-performing loans you can’t claim that you have made progress that allows the recovery of the economy.”

Referring to the stalled agreement with Saudi Arabia for the sale of surplus Greek munitions, Hatzidakis said that the matter remains open for his party. “We have asked for and are waiting for the parliamentary Committee for Transparency to be convened because, for us and other opposition parties, there are still questions that remain to be answered and the government must come and give those answers”.
