Former PM Samaras: Greece Is Running Out of Time and Money

eepGreek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras has to pass the exam of the new measures and he will be graded by the troika and the Eurogroup, said former PM Antonis Samaras.
“We are running out of time and money. It is also the end of the lies we’ve been hearing until now,” said Samaras on Friday, a day after the meeting of the Greek premier with his German and French counterparts and the presidents of key European Union institutions in Brussels.
The new Greek government has managed to win some time to present a list of proposed measures and start implementation so that it gets the final tranche of the bailout program.
“In order for Greece to avoid suffocation, Mr.Tsipras must pass the exam of the new measures, and he will be graded by the troika and the Eurogroup,” said the president of New Democracy, SYRIZA’s main opposition party.
The former Greek premier was also in Brussels on Thursday where he had unofficial talks with center-right politicians in the sidelines of the meeting between country leaders of the European People’s Party ahead of the European Union summit.
Samaras met with German Chancellor Angela Merkel, European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker, Spanish Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy and others. Even though the Greek issue was not on the agenda, the former prime minister stressed the need “to find a solution at all costs” because, as he said,  “the situation is getting worse, especially in terms of liquidity.” He invited all attendees to help Greece remain in the euro zone.
