  • [01] ND leader Samaras: Mr. Tsipras should be ashamed

    ANA/MPA---"Mr.Tsipras should be ashamed" stated New Democracy (ND) leader and former Prime Minister Antonis Samaras referring to prime minister Alexis Tsipras' speech on Saturday to SYRIZA Central Committee.

    "He charges me for the European People's Party announcement, the context of which he has co-signed in the last decision of the Eurogroup" said Samaras adding that EPPs announcement said that Greece had made a huge progress in the last years and should keep its commitments.

    "He (Tsipras) must be in a great despair and fear to refer to such nonsense and to make up imaginary enemies to justify his own lies and impasses..." said Samaras.

    Samaras noted that the 'bridge' Tsipras' prepares is for the next memorandum to which he is leading us and that for this reason, as he said, he will give account.

    "If he believes that by attacking me and our partners he can become a European politician, he has not a single idea what's going on. He does wrong not only to himself but also to the country which is in Europe and will remain in Europe. Shame!" concluded Samaras.

    [02] Alt. Social Insurance Minister Stratoulis on Christmas bonus

    ANA/MPA---Government's commitment to give the Christmas bonus to 1,262,920 pensioners will be applied, said Alternate Insurance Minister Dimitris Stratoulis adding that the regulation is ready and its cost is exactly 545 million euros, speaking on Saturday to MEGA private TV.

    He noted that the specific regulation is not included in the draft laws that Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras announced on Friday and will be tabled in parliament next week, because, as he said, it refers to an expense that will take place in December 2015 and there were other issues that should be promoted, as the measures for the humanitarian crisis. Asked if the regulation will be voted within the next four months, he said that it does not matter if it will be voted in the next four months or in June; it is a benefit that will be offered in December.

    He ruled out the possibility of cutbacks on supplementary pensions and announced that 'the retirement age limits will not be increased'.

    On the financial gap, Stratoulis appeared totally reassuring and stated that "there is no reason for concern, because the government has "proposals and solutions" and referred to the regulations that Tsipras announced and that will be tabled in parliament next week.

    [03] Two persons alleged to be Xiros' accomplices arrested

    ANA/MPA--- Police arrested two suspects related with convicted terrorist Christodoulos Xiros case, said police sources on Saturday.

    The two arrested are alleged to be Xiros' accomplices.

    Police chief Dimitris Tsaknakis will make an announcement later on Saturday.
