New Democracy Leader Samaras States Party Supports Beneficial Measures

Main opposition New Democracy (ND) leader Antonis Samaras reiterated that his party will back measures that are beneficial for the country, but will not support “mistaken policies that have failed in action and are leading the country to the deepest recession in recent decades”.
In a statement to Eleftheros Typos daily newspaper published on Wednesday, regarding a call by EU economic and monetary affairs Commissioner Olli Rehn for the political parties’ consensus to the Memorandum measures in order for the EU to disburse the following tranches of the 110 billion euro EU-IMF bailout loan, Samaras also stressed that Greece has a government and an opposition, and that the country’s parliamentary democracy remains strong.
“The Constitution, institutions and dignity mandate remind us that a government exists, the opposition exists, and the parliamentary democracy remains strong in this land called Greece”.
Even if, hypothetically speaking, the ND counter-signed consensus in order for Greece to receive the 5th tranches of the loan, “Can Mr. Olli Rehn sign us for that, with the same wrong policy the government is following and will Greece  receive the 6th and 7th tranches of the loan?” Samaras asked.
