Syriza chief Alexis Tsipras called on the government to end any discussion with the representatives of the EC-ECB-IMF troika, and propose an EU Summit meeting to focus on a different strategy for Greece.
Addressing the Syriza parliamentary group on Monday, Tsipras voiced his party’s determination to engage in dynamic action against privatisations and made a special reference to the case of ATEbank, calling it a “premeditated crime”.He also referred to the Hellenic Postbank, stressing that “private interests and their stooges” will be met with his party’s strong reaction
The Syriza leader further lashed out at the three-party government, accusing it of letting time pass instead of negotiating, effectively accepting the country’s “total isolation”, as he claimed.
He spoke of “imminent bankruptcy measures,” adding that “the programme has failed.” He also said that the memorandum has gone bankrupt and “its architects, like the IMF, are the first to jump ship.”
