The President of Parliament Zoi Konstantopoulou was highly critical of the critical bill that was urgently submitted in Parliament, in a speech she delivered shortly after 11am.
Mrs. Konstantopoulou argued that Parliament should not approve of the bill of reforms that was submitted or give in to the blackmail. She referred to the IMF report on the sustainability of the Greek public debt and underlined that the Greek Parliament should take advantage of it.
During her fiery speech, the President of Parliament noted that “we should not allow the blackmail to be complete. We should inform the Greek people on the extent of this blackmail; we should ask our partners to implement their commitments, to respect Democracy. No Parliament should legislate under such tight deadlines”.
