Mitsotakis responds to coalition's counter-measure challenge with own proposal
Opposition leader Kyriakos Mitsotakis has attempted to respond to Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras’s efforts to put New Democracy in a difficult position by suggesting that the government should implement counter-measures straight away rather than waiting until 2019 and 2020.
During a live interview on Alpha TV on Wednesday night, Mitsotakis called on Tsipras to implement 0.5 percent of GDP in expansionary measures straight away. He said this would return some of the 2016 fiscal overperformance to Greek taxpayers.
