ANEL leader Kammenos: ‘The agreement must end the Greek people’s drama’
The agreement submitted to parliament on Thursday must be the last one that will lead to a debt writeoff, junior coalition partner Independent Greeks (ANEL) leader Panos Kammenos told journalists after a meeting of the party’s parliamentary group.
“The agreement tabled today for a vote must be an agreement that constitutes the end of the Memorandum era. An agreement that will lead to a debt writeoff but also an agreement that will constitute the final solution for the drama that the Greek people have lived through the last five years,” Kammenos noted.
The ANEL leader and Greece’s National Defense Minister added that his party’s parliamentary group discussed a “range of issues relating to the government’s path and the agreement … as well as the problems that have emerged in [the country’s] migration policy and education.”
