  • [01] PM Tsipras meeting Hollande in Paris

    Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras started his meeting with French President Francois Hollande in Paris on Wednesday at the Elysee presidential palace, with whom he is discussing Greece's program review.

    Tsipras will explain to the French president that the deal between his government and the institutions should have closed a long time ago, because delays cost. Concerning the two draft bills on taxation and social security which the government said it will submit to parliament next week, Tsipras will tell Hollande that it is the country's right to decide how to distribute financial burden.

    [02] ND leader: Greece deserves most of all a serious government

    New Democracy leader Kyriakos Mitsotakis said the current Greek government is incompetent and Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras never intended to implement any reforms for the country's economy, according to an interview with the Washington Post published on its website on Wednesday.

    "I think that Greece, first of all, deserves a serious and competent government with good people in top positions," he was quoted as saying, noting that the issue of the country's debt needs to be addressed.

    He went on to explain that Tsipras never really wanted to implement reforms but only hoped he could achieve a restructuring of the country's debt. This, he added, led the economy into a recession, with Greece is the first European country to impose capital controls.

    The leader of the main opposition also criticized the government's record in managing the refugee crisis, saying that they haven't been able to build the camps across the country for the 50,000 refugees and migrants who are stuck in Greece. He also called again for elections.
