Meimarakis says ND will not support new taxes if he is its leader
Attacking the government during a meeting in the northwestern Greek city of Ioannina, main opposition New Democracy’s leader Evangelos Meimarakis said it had set aside all its pre-election pledges and claimed that the so-called social sensitivity of the Left was nothing but a myth.
“With Meimarakis as president of ND, we will not vote for a single taxation measure because the ability of Greeks to pay taxes has been exhausted,” he told the meeting on Saturday night. Meimarakis is among the candidates vying for the party’s presidency in an upcoming ND election.
Following SYRIZA’s election last January, he added, current prime minister Alexis Tsipras was “shooting the country in the foot”.
“However dangerous he was with his ‘no’ to everything, he is even more dangerous with his ‘yes’ to everything,” Meimarakis said.
