Leftist leader rejects competitiveness pact

Opposition Radical Left Coalition (SYRIZA) parliamentary group leader Alexis Tsipras on Tuesday called for the rejection of the Competitiveness Pact at the upcoming EU Summit, as well as a referendum and the renegotiation of debt within the framework of the EU.

In statements made after a meeting with the prime minister, Tsipras pointed out that the Competitiveness Pact, in essence, is an even tougher European Memorandum, one with no timeframe.

Tsipras also suggested a referendum to strengthen the country’s negotiating ability.
