“We do not belong to a dogmatic world, where only one solution is found… We did have a lot of options, but none of the options were pursued,” Kostas Isychos said.
Some of such options include developing multilateral and bilateral relations with BRICS member state — Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa – and revising Greece’s relationship within the European Union and the Eurozone, the spokesman said, adding that the third bailout could be abolished.
“We will work with any forces that have credibility among the people and want to abolish the third package which has been imposed on the Greek people,” Kostas Isychos said adding that the third package includes “near colonial policies.”
“It is not just a question of following economic rules and harsh policies, but also to give up a great part of sovereignty, which has already been given to our creditors,” the spokesman said.
The Popular Unity party set up by 25 dissident Syriza members will take part in a snap parliamentary election expected to be held in Greece by the end of September.
On August 14, the Eurogroup approved the third bailout package for Athens, worth 86-billion-euro ($95-billion), in exchange for more austerity reforms that include tax increases and pension cuts.
