Main opposition ND lashes out at government for the agreement

Main opposition New Democracy (ND) leader Kyriakos Mitsotakis in a party meeting on Tuesday leveled against the government for the terms of the agreement.

SYRIZA’s election was a product of deception and its stay in government is based on the same political method, he underlined and added: “The measures of the agreement will now be tabled in Parliament. We will do what we have to do. We will explain that the government has agreed on a fourth memorandum without additional financing but with permanent measures of 2 pct of GDP and high primary surplus targets. The so-called offset measures will only be implemented provided that the country will exceed the primary surplus target. And all the above without a commitment about the debt and the ECB quantitative easing programme. The cost of the measures reach 12.5 billion euros.”

“The cost of Tsipras’ lack of credibility is high,” he said adding that he brought a fourth memorandum that puts more pressure on the society in order to remain in government.

Regarding the elections, he said: The government is doing its best to avoid the elections.

Finally, he claimed that the creditors are asking additional measures because they do not trust the government.
