The policies and practices followed by Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras on proposed pension reforms are creating new “explosive” problems, New Democracy spokesman Giorgos Koumoutsakos said Tuesday, responding to criticism leveled by the prime minister’s office against party leader Kyriakos Mitsotakis.
“The policies and practices of Mr. Tsipras are not resolving any problem. They are instead creating many more and more explosive [problems],” Koumoutsakos said in a press release.
Earlier, Mitsotakis called on the prime minister to withdraw the government’s proposals and start talks from scratch. Tsipras’ office replied that his proposals are “a sign of complete irresponsibility and provocation”.
“It’s now obvious. Mr. Tsipras doesn’t even understand what all Greeks see. He should understand it, even belatedly; and finally change course,” ND’s spokesman added.
