Greek government 'misleading' voters, says European Commission president
June 17 , 2015
European Commission president Jean-Claude Juncker has alleged that the Greek government is misleading voters after prime minister Alexis Tsipras said that international lenders were attempting to “humiliate” Greece.
Juncker accused the government of telling “things to the Greek public which are not consistent with” what he had told Tsipras.
Greek leaders have claimed that the creditors wanted to increase the VAT on electricity and raise the sales tax on medicine. Juncker refuted these claims, saying he was not in favor of taking these steps.
