The Coalition of the Radical Left (SYRIZA) Parliamentary group on Thursday strongly criticised Prime Minister George Papandreou's decision to be absent during "Prime Minister's Question Time' on Friday, saying he had restricted his role to that of delivering "controlled victory speeches to disguise the paucity of his policies".
Papandreou was scheduled to answer to a question tabled by SYRIZA Parliamentary group leader Alexis Tsipras concerning the results of the Eurozone summit and its decision for a second bailout programme for Greece. Papandreou will be absent in order to carry out a tour of Epirus.
