Troika acting like ‘conquerers,’ party leader says

The leader of the rightwing anti-bailout party Independent Greeks, Panos Kammenos, told Skai on Friday that representatives of Greece’s international credtiors — the European Commission, European Central Bank and International Monetary Fund, or the troika — are acting like «conquerers» in Greece and that their presence is «not desirable.»

Kammenos added that he believed the country would be obliged to proceed to a new restructuring of debt held by private creditors, following a write-down in March known as private sector involvement (PSI).

He also predicted that Prime Minister Antonis Samaras would perform a «large somersault» on Friday evening and honor everything that he has pledged in writing to German Chancellor Anngela Merkel.
