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.


BUENOS AIRES - "Greece will continue to help the victims of the devastating earthquakes, both in Turkiye and in Syria," Foreign Minister Nikos Dendias said in his statement after the end of his meeting with Argentina's Foreign Minister, Santiago Andrés Cafiero, in Buenos Aires.
