ND leader Mitsotakis: Tax tsunami that will bring the people to their knees

New Democracy (ND) leader Kyriakos Mitsotakis referred to a ‘tax tsunami’ that will bring the citizens to their knees and accused Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras of choosing the blind clash.

Speaking to SKAI radio on Friday the main opposition leader noted that the taxes in the period 2017-22 is the direct result of the disastrous 2015 Q1 underlining that Tsipras himself admitted that he led the country to the edge of the cliff.

“The economy has not yet reached where it was at the end of 2014. Two billion euros additional measures were implemented and the economy is not recovering. Substantial investments have not been made” he said adding that Tsipras is celebrating the return to the markets without reason”.

“It is obvious”, said Mitsotakis, “that after the completion of the second review the country returns to normality but this does not safeguard conditions for growth”.

He reiterated his request for general elections noting that the sooner the better for the country.
