23 June, 16:08

    (ANSAmed) - ATHENS, JUNE 23 - The Greek government's latest proposal, which was presented and discussed at Monday's meetings in Brussels, have caused reactions within Syriza and the government, as daily To Vima online reports. The first warning came from the Minister of National Defense and Independent Greeks leader Panos Kammenos, who declared that he would not accept the abolition of the discounted VAT rate on the islands.

    Vice President of Parliament and Syriza MP Alexis Mitropoulos later told Star Channel that he does not believe that these "extreme and antisocial" measures can be brought to Parliament for approval. Syriza MP Yannis Michelogiannakis also commented on Channel 9 that an agreement based on the government's new proposals would be catastrophic for Greece and argued that such an agreement will only exacerbate the social destitution that his party was promised to end. Michelogiannakis called the Prime Minister to reject such a deal, particularly if it is not accompanied by a debt restructure and investment plant to support growth in the Greek economy. (ANSAmed).
