  • [01] SYRIZA spokesman Skourletis on the acceleration of the presidential election process

    ANA/MPA---The government is in essence "dragged to the speeding up of the process for the election of the Greek President," SYRIZA spokesman Panos Skourletis said on Tuesday in an interview with ANA-MPA.

    "It was a forced choice, after the government found that its plans came to a deadlock and all its approaches and reports regarding the exit from the memorandum have been cancelled. In an effort to present a new story to the Greek people, which, however, will hide those agreed with the troika, the government hastily goes into this process for the election of the President of the Republic," he said.

    Skourletis cleared out that SYRIZA will not be involved in a debate over the name of the candidate President. "It is the first time that the person who will be named has very little importance considering the actual political issue. The dilemma is clear: whoever of the deputies takes the responsibility in favour of the person nominated, he or she authorises Samaras to continue the memorandum policy," he noted.

    Main opposition spokesman said that "the dynamic to be developed in the next few days will secure a parliamentary majority to SYRIZA" adding that "memorandum policies will not exist under a SYRIZA government."

    The full interview is available for subscribers at the ANA-MPA website.
