ND denies leaks on Mitsotakis-Tsipras’ meeting, says ‘mood’ was very different
New Democracy denied on Tuesday the information leaked by the prime minister’s office on what was discussed between Alexis Tsipras and the party’s new leader Kyriakos Mitsotakis earlier in the day, saying the mood of the meeting was very different from the one described and Tsipras’ associates are undermining his message by leaking alleged statements.
“We want to improve political discourse in the country. It’s not a sign of improvement to have leaks. The statements that were given as leaks were never made. Talks were held in a completely different climate from the one presumed by the leaks,” they said.
According to the same sources, Mitsotakis expressed his concern for the country’s general path which creates uncertainty and disappointment to citizens, while he also noted the extended recession, the loss of investments and the inability to attract new.
He also discussed his objections or his party’s positions on the discussed Constitutional review, social security reforms, changes in the operation of Greece’s TV regulator and the draft bill on reforming public administration. Mitsortakis also asked and received a comprehensive briefing on the refugee crisis and issues of foreign policy.
