New Democracy leader Mitsotakis: Tsipras has ended both politically and essentially

Main opposition New Democracy (ND) leader Kyriakos Mitsotakis accused Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras of having hurt the country and suggested that he must not remain in the government any more.

Mitsotakis was addressing a party event in Thessaloniki late on Friday.

“We have a tough pre-election period ahead of us. I do not know how long it will last. I do not know when the elections will be held. But I hope that we will have early elections because every day that passes, the SYRIZA government hurts the country,” he noted and added:

“We want to win the elections because the citizens will trust us again and not only because they are tired of the current government.”
