ND leader Mitsotakis calls on Tsipras to resign

Main opposition New Democracy (ND) leader Kyriakos Mitsotakis called on Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras to resign if he cannot respond to his responsibilities.

Mitsotakis accused Tsipras of mocking the citizens, stressing that once again he does not meet the commitments of the memorandum that he has signed. "Any delay in the disbursement of the 2.8 billion euro sub-tranche would inevitably lead to the imposition of new measures. A large part of the citizens cannot pay the taxes and often lacks the necessary," he explained.

Moreover, he noted that the state owes more than 7 billion euros to the private sector adding that a significant amount of the sub-tranche will be used to cover part of that debt in order to avoid the closing down of other companies and the increase in unemployment.

The leader of the main opposition stressed that the prime minister is personally responsible for the situation of the economy and the deterioration of the Greek citizens' every day life.

"There is no room for another perpetual negotiation by an incompetent and obsessive government. If he cannot respond to his responsibilities, he would rather resign. No more time can be lost. He will be held accountable," he underlined.
