The former Prime Minister Kostas Simitis has commented on the upcoming elections on the 25th of January and commented that the government and parties must create “our own policy of European cooperation” and initiate “serious talks with our partners”.
In his statement Mr. Simitis expressed his concern regarding financial developments, in light of the political uncertainty that is currently dominating in Greece and stressed the importance of the country’s European perspective.
Mr. Simitis opined that “absolute autonomy is not possible in the [European] Union” and lamented that “we are only interested in the troika and the country’s funding”, adding that Greece is “isolated”.
According to the former PM “the policy of austerity is not a permanent rule” and urged the parties to pursue “serious talks” with Greece’s partners, while aiming to increase growth and secure a “more democratic operation” of the EU.
