New Democracy vice-president: Tsipras reshuffles cabinet to give his cronies jobs

In a Corfu press conference Saturday, the vice-president of New Democracy, Adonis Georgiadis, said: “Yesterday’s reshuffle confirmed all of New Democracy’s fears. The same people were recycled,with very few changes; his ministers’ and deputy ministers’ responsibilities were increased precisely so Tsipras could help out his cronies and manage whatever remaining political time he has left with as few inner-party conflicts as possible. However, the new ministerial cabinet he chose is not functional and it isn’t anticipated that it will be able to do anything solid for the Greek economy.”

Georgiadis added: “We need strong leadership but don’t have it. That’s why we are calling for elections – not because we want to return to power, but because Greece doesn’t have time to waste. We are calling for elections because we firmly believe that if the current government remains in power, it will seriously damage the nation and reduce our ability to enter the markets in time to avoid a possible fourth memorandum, or worse, a return to the drachma.”
