Greece’s main opposition party has a clear message for Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras: Don’t count on us to bail out your government.
The country needs new elections, and the New Democracy party will vote against the “excessive” fiscal measures demanded by creditors for 2019 and 2020, its leader Kyriakos Mitsotakis said in a Bloomberg TV interview on Thursday.
“These fiscal measures are the cost that Greece unfortunately has to pay for the incompetence of this government,” he said. “Mr Tsipras has brought us into this mess. He’s been claiming that he has a solid parliamentary majority so it’s up to him to deliver.”
