Adonis Georgiadis: New Measures Means Elections

georgiadis_6930332Today, Health Minister, Adonis Georgiadis, was interviewed on a Greek TV program. During his interview, he made the following statement, causing a series of reactions: “if Greece’s lenders demand to impose more horizontal measures, meaning cuts in salaries and in pensions, then we will go for a new round of elections. The Greeks have to decide if they will impose new measures or not.”

The statements of the Health Minister came after reports that Greece faces the possibility of new austerity measures next year, due to the finance gap being bigger than the expected.

While speaking on Skai television, he went on to attack the SYRIZA party, saying that SYRIZA gives only false promises to the Greek people.
