The relevant government spokesman on Monday afternoon announced that the Mitsotakis government will support the earlier reopening of Parliament, and specifically on Aug. 22, as well as the scheduling of an off-the-agenda debate within the same week to focus directly on the ongoing wiretapping furor in the country.
The statement by spokesman and Deputy Minister of State Yannis Economou came hours after main opposition leader Alexis Tsipras sent a letter to the Parliament president demanding the reopening of the legislature and a debate at a plenary session on the grave political controversy.
“The government wants to investigate the issue of the legal inter-connection (phone tap) of Mr. (Nikos) Androulakis‘ (mobile) phone, with seriousness and whatever is necessary in an institutional and parliamentary level,” he said.
Greece’s parliament was previously set to reopen on Aug. 31.
