Greece’s main opposition New Democracy party on Saturday lashed out at Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras after his speech at a conference organized by the Economist.
The main opposition accused the Greek Prime Minister of “lying” for Greece’s economic situation when he took power as well as for the activities of his government.
“Mr Tsipras’ anxiety to persuade his party members is great. He said he was trapped by the previous government, but who trapped him when he dragged the country to elections and when he proved unprepared to govern?” ND spokesman Costas Karagounis said in an announcement.
It also accused him of risking every month not to pay salaries and pensions while speaking of red lines and advised him not to speak of growth as the first recession signs have already appeared in the market.
“We doubt if he himself believes his lies,” the announcement concluded.
