New Democracy disagrees on many issues with the government but it’s important to have keeping communication channels open, main opposition leader Kyriakos Mitsotakis said on Tuesday after his first meeting with Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras since he was elected to the post.

“I look forward to an honest discussion,” Mitsotakis said during the meeting. Commenting on what Tsipras told him during the meeting, the ND leader noted that the two sides disagree on many issues but that institutional parties must keep the channels of communication open.

He also said that there must be an effort to achieve an understanding on institutional issues for which the Constitution itself requires increased majorities, such as the issue of the constitutional review.

Mitsotakis also pledged to maintain communication with the government and keep political debate “civilized” in parliament and beyond.
