Charitsis: Greek Gov’t Can’t Change Its Mind Three Times in 15 Days

ATHENS – The government "can't change its mind three times in 15 days regarding the serious issues that concern the Greek economy," commented main opposition SYRIZA spokesperson Alexis Charitsis to Thema radio on Tuesday, and he urged the government to reveal its plans to the Greeks.

"Initially, Finance Minister Christos Staikouras claimed that the European agreement against the pandemic was good and yesterday we heard from Mr. Skylakakis that the conditions of the agreement are onerous," Charitsis said, adding that the current unprecedented crisis is made worse by the government's delays.

Referring to a French-German proposal made on Monday, he said that "in this crisis, as in the fiscal and the refugee crises, Europe appears to running breathlessly to catch up with the events and leaving others to take the lead." Regarding the specific proposal, he said it was "too general" and that its details and conditions need to be carefully examined.

He underlined that from the start, SYRIZA has supported that the solution is a eurobond and the mutualisation of the debt, with a fair allocation of the burden from the crisis to all the member-states.
