The Greek government reached a political agreement with the institutions for completing the second review at the Eurogroup in Malta, government spokesman Dimitris Tzanakopoulos repeated on Tuesday, during the regular press briefing.
The government succeeded in laying the foundations for a gradual return to normality benefiting Greek workers, he added, while the agreement would have zero fiscal impact since each euro of additional austerity will be offset by one euro of measures easing the burdens.
Attacking the main opposition, Tzanakopoulos said that New Democracy had chosen to adopt a fully undermining stance during the negotiations, while its leader Kyriakos Mitsotakis “was demanding an unconditional surrender and promising more and more measures.”
“The main opposition finds itself at a strategic impasse for the third time. Its plan for a ‘left interlude’ has been defeated once again,” he said./ΙΒΝΑ
