Talking to journalists, New Democracy President Kyriakos Mitsotakis called once again for elections and stressed that the government has brought a fourth memorandum without any financing. He said that the government should promptly return to society 0.5% of the surplus it achieved in 2016 while, referring to the countermeasures, he argued that they do not benefit those afflicted by the measures and called them a “joke”.

By presenting himself as a giver, Mr. Mitsotakis is just losing face, stated government circles on the other hand.
