Government accuses SYRIZA and Independent Greeks of ‘clear alliance’

Government spokeswoman Sofia Voultepsi accused SYRIZA on Monday of forming a “clear alliance” with Independent Greeks to prevent a president from being elected, which would lead to snap elections.

“What we are seeing is incredible,” said Voultepsi in reference to the recent bribery allegations made by Independent Greeks. She accused SYRIZA of profiting form these claims.

She dismissed the allegations that there was an attempt to bribe Independent Greeks MP Pavlos Haikalis as a “purely internal matter” at the nationalist party. The government representative added that it was suspicious Haikalis did not provide authorities with the name of his alleged briber right from the start.
