Greek PM: Government will not follow SYRIZA’s return to ‘populism and lies’


Greece’s Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis has told members of his cabinet on Thursday that the main opposition party has returned to “the streets, populism and unbridled lies.”

According to Ekathimerini, Mitsotakis made his comments after SYRIZA’s recent decision to abstain from any parliamentary votes until a national election is held.

“This unacceptable decision of not participating in parliamentary votes essentially declares the SYRIZA’s accession to the politics of the street,” the Greek Prime Minister said.

“It is a return to the populism of slogans and rampant lies, instead of rationality and arguments. The country does not want to relive these disastrous experiences under any circumstances.”

Mitsotakis emphasised the importance of replying to such extreme behaviour by focusing on New Democracy’s policy platform and not following SYRIZA in its downhill slide.
