The government representative, Pavlos Marinakis, was asked to comment on the sharp statement made today by Stefanos Kasselakis regarding his absence – while he was invited – at the event in honor of former Prime Minister Kostas Simitis.
“I am not even the press representative of the former prime minister, but in response to what Mr. Kasselakis said, let him read a little history to see what happened in 2015 and learn about the third and unnecessary memorandum,” he said and added that as there is continuity in the state there is and the parties. “Mr. Kasselakis did not establish a new political organization. The party in which he was elected with a large percentage pre-existed. Before Mr. Kasselakis talks about debt, he should read recent history before analyzing the older one.”
Speaking to ANT1 today, Mr. Kasselakis said: “What business do I have with all those who have wasted so many billions of euros of the Greek people? We forget the entanglement of these years. It wasn’t just modernization. Let others take over the mantle of the country’s debt. SYRIZA certainly did not cause it.”
