ATHENS - Mr. Tsipras is the leader of a deeply divided party, he is afraid to look back to his past and recourses to extreme anti-democratic logics, stated Interior Minister Takis Theodorikakos commenting SYRIZA leader's statements to his party's central committee.

Referring to MeRA25 leader Yanis Varoufakis, he called his behaviour provocative adding that he is making a show of his narcissism.

On the migration issue, he reminded that the Interior Ministry has transferred 50 million euros from the "Solidarity" programme to the Migration and Asylum Ministry when it was reinstated. On the freezing of the land requisitions announced by Migration Minister Notis Mitarachi, he said that "he acts correctly" and gives another chance to discuss the issue with the local and regional authorities of the islands.
