The end of the SYRIZA-ANEL coalition announced by Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras and Independent Greeks (ANEL) leader Panos Kammenos on Sunday was a “staged divorce”, main opposition New Democracy asserted in an announcement.
“The pathetic duo Tsipras-Kammenos today presented, on national television, their staged ‘divorce’: a show that aims at the ratification of the Prespes Agreement, SYRIZA remaining in power and to keep Kammenos and his MPs in their seats a little while longer,” ND said.
This was the reason, the announcement added, that Kammenos “has loaned two of his MPs to Tsipras so that they can give him a vote of confidence, without ousting them from ANEL’s Parliamentary Group.”
“The curtain must fall on this tasteless and damaging performance. In the upcoming vote of confidence, any MP that supports Mr. Tsipras is assuming a responsibility before history,” the party added.
