Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras ended speculation about early elections in Greece and the views that the Greek government will completely cross over red lines. At yesterday’s meeting with members of government in Prime Minister’s Office, Tsipras stressed that it should be stopped and forget all ideas and calls for early elections and a referendum if the agreement with international creditors doesn’t comply with Greek demands.
“Forget any idea of elections and a referendum. The government recently received a mandate from the people, from the majority of the Greek people and it has a comfortable majority in the Greek parliament as well,” said Tsipras, according to sources in his office.
Greek Prime Minister stressed that the people voted for them to cope with difficult decisions, commenting that they were all aware that negotiations with creditors won’t be easy.
Tsipras set an ultimatum: either a sustainable solution for Greece, which will take out the country from the crisis and the period of austerity memoranda, or rejection of any agreement that will continue destroying Greece.
