Varoufakis: The new government will open a new chapter in debt

MeRA25 will vote against the government’s policy platform, its leader Yanis Varoufakis said on Monday, during the last of a three-day debate in parliament.

Varoufakis claimed the government will clash with the Greek people, because of the combination of the government’s failed fiscal policy and the widening class war, which will lead to a greater brain drain. He also rejected hopes that the primary surplus target could be negotiated to drop to 1.5-1.6 pct.

“To meet this target, the clear investments must increase at a much higher rate than the current-accounts deficit, something that has never been done,” he said.

The new government, he said, will not bring the country back to normalcy, but will open a new chapter in debt.
