Mitsotakis doubt prospect of a ‘clean exit’ after bailout ends in Aug
Main opposition leader Kyriakos Mitsotakis expressed reservations over whether the country will achieve a “clean exit” from the bailout era when the current memorandum ends in August, as the prospect has emerged as among the most prominent “discussion points” by the poll-trailing Tsipras government.
The center-right New Democracy (ND) party president made the statement in an interview with Newsmax, which took place last week during his US visit but which was published on Monday.
Mitsotakis, a former minister in previous government, said he believes European creditors will request the “reinforced supervision” of Greece’s public finances, in order to make sure the country remains on the “right path” after the third bailout ends.
He statements echoed very recent statements by European officials, including new EWG head Hans Vijlbrief, among others.
In putting forth his pro-reform and pro-market credentials, he said only a “reform-friendly” center-right government in Greece, one able to apply policies to make the country attractive for foreign investments, domestic capital and able to create jobs, will keep Greece on a right path.
Asked about current Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras, he claimed there was “great disappointment” among the citizenry with the latter. “He (Tsipras) appeared as an anti-systemic, populist candidate, and in the end, he did exactly the opposite of what he promised.”
