ND criticizes Alternate FinMin Chouliarakis for missing EWG

New Democracy criticized the government and Alternate Finance Minister George Chouliarakis for missing a EuroWorking Group (EWG) meeting on Thursday to speak at an event at LSE in London.

“While the second [program] review is at a crucial point after a year of delay and the country is at risk of missing its inclusion in [ECB’s] quantitative easing, the government is concerned with other things. The relevant minister, Mr. Chouliarakis, instead of representing the countryat the crucial meeting of the EuroWorking Group, chooses to vanish,” the party said.

“Is it a case of indescribable irresponsibility or is there something else going on?” ND added, noting that the responsibility belongs to Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras.
