Meimarakis reiterated his position that he will cooperate with SYRIZA after the elections

New Democracy leader Vangelis Meimarakis reiterated on Thursday his position that he will cooperate with SYRIZA after the elections, if needed, saying the country wants consensuses, in an interview with news website newpost.gr.

Discussing possible cooperation with other parties, he said he will not reject SYRIZA because “solving problems is the priority and the country demands consensuses and cooperation.”

He went on to criticize SYRIZA leader Alexis Tsipras for wanting a short election campaign of 20 days so that people wouldn’t see what they will be called to pay because of the third bailout deal. “So that people wouldn’t see that the lefty, anti-bailout prime minister signed everything,” he said adding that if Tsipras refuses any cooperation after the elections he will have to bear the cost.
