Co-chair of the National Liberal Party (PNL) Alina Gorghiu says that the resignation of the Tsipras government is a new problem for Athens, stressing that the Greek lesson illustrates how populism may collapse a country, and that Premier Victor Ponta is acting according to the same formula.
“The resignation of the Tsipras government raises yet another problem for a country that has since long been in a very difficult situation. For this reason included, prudence and responsibility remain essential for Romania. The most important thing is that we don’t single-handedly harm ourselves, heading through reckless spending into budget deficits of the sort that led Greece on the brink of bankruptcy,” Alina Gorghiu wrote on Facebook on Friday.
Gorghiu says that she cannot “accept Victor Ponta’s cynicism to plant timer bombs set to explode in the economy after he is no longer a Prime Minister.”
“The Greek lesson is that populism can collapse a country, and Prime Minister Ponta acts exactly according to this formula of selling illusions to the people,” says the Liberal leader.
Greek Premier Alexis Tsipras announced on Thursday evening his resignation from the helm of the government, calling for early elections.
