“The revelations about that happened at the cabinet meeting last week are unthinkable. We are talking about blackmailers and blackmailed,” main opposition New Democracy (ND) shadow defence minister Vassilis Kikilias stated on Monday.
“The government, of its own accord, drew aside the curtain a little and we saw what is happening inside,” said Kikilias, referring to the revelations and the blame game traded by former foreign minister Nikos Kotzias and Panos Kammenos, the head of the junior partner in the coalition government. “We are speaking of a government in decay”.
Kikilias reiterated the need for elections, underlining that “Kyriakos Mitsotakis (ND leader) called for elections a long time ago before the damage for the country became irreversible.
