New Democracy leader Kyriakos Mitsotakis presented a mix of far right rhetoric and neoliberalism in his speech at the 82nd Thessaloniki International Fair (TIF), which will lead to a new bailout program, government spokesman Dimitris Tzanakopoulos said on Saturday night, commenting on the plan proposed by the main opposition.
“The mix of far right rhetoric and neoliberalism that Mr. Mitsotakis has announced is not worthy of the country or the citizens,” Tzanakopoulos said.
“The speech of the leader of the main opposition was one more gift to the government. In his anxiety to convince the state-supported entrepreneurship that continues to count on him, Mr. Mitsotakis appeared more as an agent of certain interests and less as a political leader” he said.
“He defended social injustices, promised to write off debts of tax evaders and to fire civil servants […] He even promised to give the General Accounting Office to the private sector” he said. “But his pledge for a new memorandum is the moment when he crossed the line.”
