  • [01] Second programme review will be concluded without new measures, Tzanakopoulos says

    Government spokesman Dimitris Tzanakopoulos on Saturday, in statements to SKAI TV, expressed the government's optimism that the second programme review will be concluded in January without new measures.

    He also ruled out the possibility of further pension reductions and reassured that the elections will be held in 2019.

    Moreover, the government spokesman said that the Greek side has made all the necessary compromises adding that 95 percent of the issues of the second programme review have been settled.

    He also said that the IMF demand for another 4.5 billion euro measures in 2019 will by no means be made acceptable.

    [02] Digital Policy Min Pappas rules out possibility of elections or referendum

    There will be neither elections nor referendum, Minister for Digital Policy Nikos Pappas said in an interview with Realnews on Sunday and reassured that the second programme review will close soon.

    "There is no reason for delays," he underlined.

    For the IMF participation in the programme, the Digital Policy Minister said that "Greece has accepted its participation for the sake of the agreement. It is its own decision now whether it will stay or not. Greece has met its commitments. The rest need to do the same."

    Asked whether the hard core of the creditors seek the collapse of Tsipras' government, he replied: "It is reasonable that the hard core of the neoliberal European Right finds it difficult to accept this reality" of a left progressive government in Greece that achieves fiscal balance and puts the country on recovery course."
