Radical Left Coalition (SYRIZA) Parliamentary Group President Alexis Tsipras, speaking in an interview with NET radio, expressed pessimism over Friday's extraordinary EU summit as well as the next on March 25, stressing that the Competitiveness Accord being promoted is even harsher than the existing memorandum.

He added that if on the 25th of the month the government adopts the Competitiveness Accord then the Greek people will not have the right to decide on their fate "something that is extremely crucial."
