Fofi Gennimata, the newly elected chief of the PASOK socialist party, on Friday called on the government to stop “bluffing” and to come to a deal with the country’s international creditors amid rising fear of a Greek default and possible ouster from the eurozone.
“Uncertainty and insecurity are suffocating Greek society,” said Gennimata in a statement. “The economy is sinking after five months of dithering by the government. Enough. No more bluffing.”
Gennimata added that “Tsipras has a duty to secure the rights and interests of the Greek citizens and of the country. He must say a resounding ‘no’ to the fixation of his party for a rift [with the eurozone].”
