PASOK is escalating its attack on the Government, but mainly on the person of the Prime Minister for the wiretapping case.

Harilaou Trikoupis may not have come to the bars asking for “here and now elections”, but gradually, almost every 24 hours, the statements of Nikos Androulakis are becoming more and more aggressive and more personal, addressed by Kyriakos Mitsotakis.

Maximos’ constant question to the president of PASOK “Why do you refuse to be properly informed about the matter of your surveillance” was a fuse, alongside the “legitimate” characterization given to it by the prime minister.

Parameters that create not only irritation in Charilaou Trikoupis but something even more: They lead the party to a complete rupture with the government of Kyriakos Mitsotakis.

“I will not be informed in the ear” – You are instrumentalizing the issue

Yesterday, Nikos Androulakis made his harshest statement since the beginning of the developments with the finding that he was being monitored by the EYP: He requested that his case file be transferred to the Institutions and Transparency Committee, declaring again that he will not receive “information in the ear”, personally accusing Mr. Mitsotakis of the responsibility of monitoring and concluding with an indirect call to the prime minister to resign: “Today this proud Faction, together with the majority of the democratic world of the country, shows you the exit door from power”.

Not even Maximou, however, backtracks from the course he has set for the history of the surveillance of the president of PASOK: He refuses to be informed, he uses the issue for his own political gain.

Yesterday, in fact, the Government Spokesperson, responding to the extremely aggressive statements of Nikos Androulakis, tried to put an end to the debate and its feeding, in public. He referred to the Parliament, where after August 22, when it opens hastily, the issue of wiretapping will enter the parliamentary rails: A discussion at the level of political leaders, which was requested by Alexis Tsipras, a meeting of the Committee on Institutions and Transparency and, in the background, an examination of the Affairs Committee, for the EYP, starting – probably – from 2015 (and for its operation, that is, under the SYRIZA government).

SYRIZA: They lost legitimacy

Alexis Tsipras intervened yesterday via Social Networks to side with Androulakis regarding his request for his file to be forwarded to the competent parliamentary committee.

“The request of Nikos Androulakis to give the Committee of Institutions and Transparency the complete file of his monitoring is a self-evident democratic obligation for the government”, commented Mr. Tsipras, among others. Koumoundourou keeps the issue of “delays” high which she charges the Government for the matter, in order to achieve de-escalation of the situation. He continues to call for the resignation of the prime minister, alleging that he has lost his legitimacy to govern in light of the developments.

It is obvious that he is betting on an opposition front of the democratic forces, the president of SYRIZA, pushing throughout the week: Opening here and now of the Parliament, discussion at the level of political leaders, meeting here and now of the Committee on Institutions and Transparency.
