ANEL Junior Government Partner Says Greek Reforms are Unconstitutional


Greek right-wing Independent Greeks (ANEL) leader Panos Kammenos, the junior partner of the leftist SYRIZA government, appeared on TV Presenter George Papadakis’ morning show on Friday. He criticized many of the measures voted through in Greek Parliament stating that they are not in line with the Greek Constitution but aligned to the July agreement with the Eurogroup.

He said that the ANEL party had battled on a number of issues of which “some were won, and others lost. We won on special wage charts, despite the fact that there was huge pressure. We lost on the VAT on islands, and there was huge pressure to abolish all privileges and yet we managed to preserve those on small islands.”
