Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras criticized New Democracy President Kyriakos Mitsotakis in Parliament on Wednesday, for his stance on the negotiations, and with regard to the issue of convolutedness and the Examining Committee’s finding on media and party loans.
PM Tsipras accused Mr. Mitsotakis of identifying with the most extreme creditors, for petty-political reasons, thus harming the country in a crucial phase. He rejected Mr. Mitsotakis’ request for elections saying, “We will not hand over the country to the ‘complaisant’ side”, and added that everyone will be judged in the fall of 2019. Mr. Tsipras also enlarged upon the “triangle of convolutedness” between parties-banks-media, stating that citizens can come to their own conclusions and that Justice will now take over based on the finding. “We are not over with convolutedness. We are just starting”, he stressed adding, “Everything will come to light”.
On his part, New Democracy President Kyriakos Mitsotakis asked for prompt political change and made a personal attack on the Greek PM. He argued that the Greek people do not approve any of the government’s actions, adding that in democracies people’s willing should be respected.
