KKE: Any settlement of the debt is the fast implementation of new harsh measures

The Communist Party criticized harshly the speech by Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras at SYRIZA’s parliamentary group meeting on Wednesday, saying he is promoting his own “success story” which in reality is more harsh measures for the people.

“The new success story Mr. Tsipras is trying to sell us citing the congratulatory messages and visits by foreign leaders who are implementing similar harsh measures in their countries, concerns exclusively the recovery of the profits of the few and not to improvement of the lives of many,” the party said in a press release.

“After all, a prerequisite for any recovery and any settlement of the debt is the fast implementation of new harsh measures, as those included in the second program review and the ‘growth’ budget of 2017,” it added.
