  • [01] Potami leader: Alexis Tsipras kept his last promise

    ANA/MPA---The objective has been achieved. The country remains in the eurozone. Alexis Tsipras kept his last promise in spite of all those that wanted us to return to the drachma, stated Potami leader Stavros Theodorakis on the agreement for Greece at the EU Summit.

    Moreover, Theodorakis underlined "We hope government, parliament and parties to meet the occasion and without delay to take the necessary decision in order to enter, as soon as possible, into a new era" adding that "the agreement delayed and foresees painful reforms and, unfortunately, demands more sacrifices from the Greek people. This time let's do it with plan, determination and justice. For Greece and for our children".

    [02] Early pensions to be abolished, Labour Min Katrougalos says

    "Early pensions, apart from exemptions relating to unhealthy professions and parents with disabled children, will be abolished," Labour Minister George Katrougalos on Monday said in an interview with ANA-MPA.

    "We generally know that many commitments arise from the agreement, this forced agreement, this forced tactical retreat. However, there is room to move and in the framework we would like to do so as a government of social salvation," Katrougalos said.

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

    [03] Greece pays its obligations to IMF, ECB

    Greece started on Monday paying its obligations towards its creditors.

    More specifically, the General Accounting Office gave an order for the payment of about 2 billion euros to the IMF in addition to 4.2 billion euros to the ECB for a bond that expires today and about 500 million euros to the Bank of Greece.

    The funds are part of the 7 billion euro bridge loan of the ESM provided by the agreement between Greece and its creditors.
