KINAL’s Gennimata calls for ‘elections now’

In a sharply-worded statement about the departure of the Independent Greeks (ANEL) and their leader Panos Kammenos from the coalition government on Sunday, the head of the Movement for Change (KINAL) Fofi Gennimata said it “ended a partnership that has done great damage” and called for immediate elections.

“Our country can’t take any more mutual blackmailings and the farce staged by Tsipras and Kammenos. Formally, the partnership that has done great damage to the country has been broken up…any continuation of the government with remnants and political peddlers, even if this secures a nominal vote of confidence, can only lead to new dead ends. There is not popular nor real confidence in Mr. Tsipras and his ragtag governmental troupe. Elections now.”
