Venizelos: ‘Unfortunately, the crisis has not passed’
‘The victory of populist forces [SYRIZA] in 2015 led to a second economic crisis and the third [bailout] programme, and caused enormous harm. The country is now struggling to return to where it was in 2014,’ Venizelos said.
“When the SYRIZA-Independent Greeks government was forced to implement fiscal and structural reforms, it was too late. Unfortunately, the crisis is not over, because the current political system refuels it. When one does not state uncomfortable truths and does not make decisions, regardless of the political and emotional cost, that is not in the interest of Europe or of his own country,” said the former finance minister.
