Tsipras accuses Mitsotakis of being trapped in detrimental situation

Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras accused the leader of the main opposition Kyriakos Mitsotakis of being “trapped in a catastrophic deadlock stance detrimental to the country.”

The catastrophic and anti-social policies of New Democracy cannot be justified without the alibi of the memorandum pressure, Tsipras added.

Referring to the opposition’s stance on the recent name issue agreement with FYROM, the prime minister accused it of playing a very dangerous game. “Driven by the far-right faction leading of your party, you have decided to play games with a crucial national issue, to divide the Greeks in order to keep your party united,” Tsipras said.

“Adopting the speech and practices of a new nationalistic policy, you offer political coverage to fascism. You gave an opportunity to all sorts of nationalist and fascist groups to come to the fore, to threaten and to use violence,” the prime minister said, noting that “when the main opposition borrows the rhetoric of the far right and the nationalists, it is a given fact it will give the toughest players of this ideological space an opportunity to come to the fore.”
