Main opposition New Democracy (ND) spokesman Costas Karagounis on Tuesday lashed out at the Greek government on its negotiation policy. More specifically, he accused the government of having admitted that “the so-called proud negotiation has ended up in an ultimatum.”
“Until last week, Mr. Tsipras was assuring us that the text of the agreement was being finalized,” while “today he says that an agreement has not been reached yet and he has just submitted his own draft,” Karagounis noted.
He also referred to SYRIZA members’ statements on the possibility of early elections, elections that Greece cannot withstand. “What are they going to ask for? A mandate to drive the country into the rocks? Or an apology for the lies they have said?” Karagounis wondered.
