Sulik Says “Told You So!” on Eurozone Crisis
Following the sudden shift of eurozone countries in how to deal with the Greek debt crisis and the bailout funds, it was clearly not going to be long before the Freedom and Solidarity party (SaS) pointed to how it had supported some of these measures all along.
At a press conference today, head of the SaS party Richard Sulik said that the moves adopted by heads of state at the euro summit in Brussels essentially means the controlled bankruptcy of Greece, confirming that his party’s stance to the issue was right.
The summit adopted a softer option regarding the European Financial Stability Facility (EFSF), as well, something that the SaS party was calling for, and ironically, it was the vote on increasing the EFSF capacity that led to the downfall of the Slovak government this month.
Sulik says that the negotiations of eurozone leaders basically confirmed what his liberal party had been claiming for ages. He is not entirely happy with the outcome of the talks, though, noting how European taxpayers will still be the ones bearing the risk associated with moral hazard.
