ND: Return of institutions tied to new concessions, painful measures

The return of the institutions to Athens is accompanied by additional concessions, painful measures and the government’s negotiating failures, New Democracy said on Monday, after the end of the Eurogroup meeting in Brussels.

“Once again, the government is attempting to fool the Greek people. Another date went by without a deal and with an indefinite time of completion. Everything is referred to the future,” ND said.

The new deal will bring “higher primary surpluses for plenty of years, additional austerity measures in taxation and pension system which will be legislated immediately”, even after the end of the program in 2019, the party continued.

“And of course, without any talks about the debt and quantitative easing,” it added.
