EU Parliament President Tells Greece:Time For Another Puppet Government

European Parliament president Martin Schulz said his faith in the Greek government had reached “rock bottom,” and, as AFP reports, that he hopes it resigns after Sunday’s referendum. Luckily, he has an idea for a solution… the time between the departure of Tsipras’ hard-left Syriza party and new elections would have to “be bridged with a technocratic government, so that we can continue to negotiate.”

As AFP reports,

Schulz on Thursday told German Handelsblatt business daily that “new elections would be necessary if the Greek people vote for the reform programme and thus for remaining in the eurozone and Tsipras, as a logical consequence, resigns.”

The time between the departure of Tsipras’ hard-left Syriza party and new elections would have to “be bridged with a technocratic government, so that we can continue to negotiate,” Schulz was quoted as saying.

“If this transitional government reaches a reasonable agreement with the creditors, then Syriza’s time would be over,” he said. “Then Greece has another chance.”

Schulz charged that Tsipras was “unpredictable and manipulates the people of Greece, in a way which has almost demagogical traits.”

“My faith in the willingness of the Greek government to negotiate has now reached rock bottom,” he said
