Deputy finance minister resigns over Greek bailout

It’s official. Nadia Valavani, deputy finance minister, has resigned from Alexis Tsipras’s government just hours before the parliament votes on the bailout package.

As flagged earlier, Valavani has told Tsipras that it is “impossible” for her to keep serving in his government, given the austerity measures he had agreed to.

In a letter released by the finance ministry, Valavani warned that Greece faced a “crushing” capitulation at the hands of its creditors in Brussels. 

The bailout terms were not a “viable solution” to Greece’s problems, she insisted, warning:

The solution imposed today in such a depressing way is not sustainable for the Greek people and for the country.
