Citizen's Protection Minister Christos Papoutsis, speaking in an interview with the newspaper "Real News", said "the memorandum's revision is a collective affair and responsibility," adding that "we must not forget for a moment that we are not representatives of our ministries, but representatives of the citizens at the ministry that was entrusted to us by the prime minister."

Papoutsis criticised the troika's members, calling on them "to realise what their role is at last," while stressing that the government's aim is the speedy remedying of injustices in the lower social classes, but without the next day being jeopardised.
