“Not even one euro measures” is the title of the exclusive interview of Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras with “Efimerida ton Syntakton.”
“We have categorically stated that there is no case of legislating even a euro’s worth of additional measures beyond those outlined in the (bailout) agreement, and particularly not for the post-program period,” Tsipras told.
“Any demand to legislate additional measures, with an element of conditionality, is not only alien to the Greek constitution, but to the rules of democracy,” Tsipras said.
“This is an issue of self-respect and dignity,” he stressed.
Asked on the scenarios of early elections, he said he is opposed to that prospect not because he is afraid of elections, but because there is no point.
He also ruled out the possibility of raising an issue for Greece exiting the eurozone. On the Cyprus issue, he estimated that “there is no ground for a solution.” However, he said that he is willing to participate in a meeting provided that there is ground for a solution “without compromising on our principles, and without fear.”
The prime minister also made a review of his governance saying that he is of proud of what has been achieved and expressed his determination to continue the daily struggle.
