Opposition Communist Party of Greece (KKE) general secretary Aleka Papariga stated that she absolutely disagreed 100 with the prime minister during the political party leaders’ council meeting held earlier on Friday, stressing that “there is no common ground”. In a press conference immediately after the meeting that was chaired by the President of the Republic, Papariga accused the prime minister of seeking to share the responsibility in the negotiation with the troika; admitted that the country has a complex and tough road ahead and spoke about terrorizing ideological violence. She also did not rule out the likelihood of snap elections or a “blackmailing” referendum.
Papariga spoke about a real crisis not created by the memorandum, targeting labour rights and conquests. She underlined that the reorganization of the political system is an urgent need and called on the people to avoid the trap of compromise under the threat of bankruptcy.
