One of the first announcements of the SYRIZA/Independent Greeks “SANEL” government was to follow Golden Dawn’s line, meaning to stop the country’s fall through prevention of privatizations. This hopeful revolution of the new government lasted however just one single day.
Indeed the maximou presidential office put a muzzle on the ministers so they won’t say anymore stupid things.
As for the question of privatizations, the only appropriate person in the government to ask is the minister of finance Yanis Varoufakis, who has spoken to the New York Times. He denied the announcement of SANEL by saying that the privatization will continue as ordered.
This fact of course started to become more obvious from the time that the government has put as its general secretary the lawyer of negotiations Spyros Sagias who was responsible for the conversion of the postal institution in to an privatized company, the sale of the Chalkida shipyards, and finally the sale of the Piraeus port in to the Chinese COSCO.
Varoufakis specifically stated as he was completing the passionate flirting between SANEL and new democracy, “We
want to assure you that this country will become an attractive destination for foreign investors“. So the privatizations will continue as scheduled but Syriza will negotiate the equivalent, namely a big zero in the quotient.
Some spiteful from seeing the friendly climate in the delivery-receiving ceremony between Hardouvelis and Varoufakis (a photo we present to you above) have already said that this marks the continuation of the memorandum policy.
Until now they are confirmed, but to either the Tsipras-Kammenos coalition or Samaras-Venizelos coalition the solution is only one. Golden Dawn for a strong and independent Greece!!
