The government has reiterated that it will never accept the legislation of new measures, State Minister and government spokesman Dimitris Tzanakopoulos said in an interview with Kontra Channel.

“The 4.5 billion euro measures will not be made acceptable,” he underlined.
Tzanakopoulos said that the government aims at a decision during the January 26 Eurogroup that will pave the way for the conclusion of the programme review as soon as possible with a key date the meeting of the ECB Board, on 9 March.”

He underlined that the government is not to blame for the delay of the programme review as it complies with the agreements and meets its targets. He noted that what it matters is to conclude the programme review and participate in the ECB quantitative easing programme.

The government spokesman said that the debate on the medium-term measures for the debt is still open.
Moreover, he estimated that the 3.5 primary surplus target for 2018 will be met adding that this target is financially not viable for the next years because it hinders the economic growth.
