Main opposition New Democracy (ND) parliamentary spokesman Costas Tzavaras in an interview with the Athens Macedonian News Agency’s radio station Praktoreio 104,9 FM on Monday estimated that the programme review will be delayed.
Referring to the meeting between New Democracy leader Kyriakos Mitsotakis and former party leader Evangelos Meimarakis, he said that they may cooperate on New Democracy’s common vision.
Moreover, Tzavaras expressed his pessimism over the negotiation. “The government is mainly negotiating with the society in order to accept the new measures and not the institutions.”
He also said that the government may delay the conclusion of the programme review estimating that the likely rise of extreme right in Europe ahead of the elections in France and Germany may change the austerity policies.
