SYRIZA on Renewal of Stournaras’ Term at Bank of Greece

ATHENS – Μain opposition SYRIZA commenting on Tuesday on the government's proposal to renew the term of Bank of Greece governor Yannis Stournaras at the helm of the central bank, saying: "We wish Mr. Stournaras a good second term in the Bank of Greece. At least now that SYRIZA is not in government he can 'hit the target' with some of his forecasts, starting with that of a 4 pct recession due to the coronavirus crisis. Unlike when he strenuously opposed the plan for Greece's clean exit from the memoranda, promoting a credit line as the supposedly only solution, or when he was pressing for pension cuts and the reduction of of the tax-free income allowance that SYRIZA prevented."

"However, …sooner or later we will meet again and he will again have all the time he needs to undermine the next progressive government," SYRIZA said.


ATHENS - As headquarters of the European Union’s Red Sea Naval Mission to keep Yemeni Houthis from attacking ships - led by Commodore Vasileios Gryparis - Greece also is looking to become a key player in aiding security of the 27 member state bloc.
