Tsipras, Mitsotakis to spar in corruption debate in Parliament


Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras and New Democracy leader Kyriakos Mitsotakis are expected to clash in a Parliamentary debate on corruption which is scheduled to start at 2.30 p.m. on Monday.

Tsipras asked the House to schedule the debate last week after Mitsotakis challenged him to a debate on the subject.

Tsipras insists that he, and his leftist SYRIZA party, have an advantage over New Democracy and PASOK who ruled the country in alternation for several decades and have been linked to several corruption scandals.
