Speaker chides min­is­ters

Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

Par­lia­ment Speaker Zoe Con­stan­topoulou wrote to Prime Min­is­ter Alexis Tsipras yesterday to com­plain about the be­hav­ior of two mem­bers of his cab­i­net. Con­stan­topoulou ac­cused Deputy Fi­nance Min­is­ter Dim­itris Mar­das and Al­ter­nate Min­is­ter for Cit­i­zens’ Pro­tec­tion Yian­nis Panousis of mak­ing “in­sult­ing” com­ments about her. Both of the min­is­ters have been crit­i­cal of Con­stan­topoulou’s han­dling of the par­lia­men­tary process, which is seen by her crit­ics as of­fi­cious and pa­tron­iz­ing. The speaker asked Tsipras to take ac­tion to en­sure his min­is­ters re­frain from com­ments that are “shame­ful for democ­racy.”
