New Democracy leader Kyriakos Mitsorakis criticized Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras’ speech at the cabinet meeting on Tuesday, saying the government is celebrating while Greece is moving backwards.
“Every day that passes by, Greece is moving backwards and our government is celebrating,” he said, adding that the government has put up a show since the conclusion of the Eurogroup on Monday.
“The fourth memorandum it will sign, the government’s second, will be very painful to cover up the provocative triumphalism. The government signs measures totaling 5.4 bln euros which were not necessary. Now it tries to patch things up with painful measures on pension reform and taxes,” Mitsotakis said.
