Main opposition party New Democracy accused the government on Wednesday of being erratic and opportunistic after the Eurogroup and the European Stability Mechanism (ESM) announced they are freezing the implementation of Greece’s recently agreed on short-term measures for debt relief.

Eurogroup and the ESM cited Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras’ decision to distribute a one-off benefit to pensioners and to suspend a VAT rise on some islands.

“It’s obvious that Mr. Tsipras’ government is following a policy which is completely erratic and opportunistic,” the party said.
