Main opposition New Democracy party leader Antonis Samaras, speaking in an interview with the newspaper "Proto Thema", underlined his position that he will not vote for a second memorandum and not even for the medium-term programme.
"I will not vote for any commitment on a mistaken and deadlocked policy," he said on the possibility of voting for a possible second memorandum and stresses that "we have no objection to assuming commitments to decrease the deficit and control the debt. We do not disagree with the targets of fiscal restructuring but with the proved mistaken recipe that they imposed on us."

Samaras further said that he will not vote for the medium-term programme either "because it does not include recovery measures" and adds that "cutbacks without recovery cause worse recession, more padlocks and greater unemployment" and that "we want a decrease in extravagance combined with recovery."
