Government spokesman Gavriil Sakellaridis on Tuesday dismissed as “monumental irresponsibility” comments by the former general secretary for public revenues, Haris Theoharis, who claimed that a working group has been formed to manage a transition to the drachma.

Theoharis, who is the parliamentary spokesman for centrist To Potami, said that Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras's office has formed a working group with officials from the State General Accounting office, “which is working right now for the drachma.”

“Today's statement by Mr Theoharis, other than a science-fiction scenario, is also monumental irresponsibility,” Sakellaridis said. “Especially so coming from the representative of a party that likes to preach responsibility.”
