In a very brief statement, the Greek right-wing party “Independent Greeks” (ANEL) informed that they are going to request the creation of a committee of inquiry on the way in which Greece entered the memorandum, which was one of their electoral commitments.

This was decided, according to a statement of party president Panos Kammenos, during the meeting of the PG of the ANEL. According to information from AMNA, at the hearing of the PG, Kammenos briefed the MPs on the developments in relation to the Eurogroup, saying that Mr. Varoufakis negotiated under very harsh and difficult circumstances and added that for the first time Germany took steps back.

From the announcement it can be inferred that the enquiry will be limited to the period 2009-2010, the period of the governance of Giorgos Papandreou. For the issue to be examined in the Parliament’s plenary, however, the signatures of the SYRIZA MPs will be required.

The announcement of ANEL is as follows:

Unanimously, the Parliamentary Group of the Independent Greeks decided to write a text for the creation of the Fact Finding Committee on how Greece entered the memorandum.
