In an interview to the newspaper El Mundo, which will be published today, Yanis Varoufakis warns Podemos that if they form a coalition government with the Socialists “they will pay a big price”.
“Any government under the leadership of PSOE with the participation of Podemos, will have its hands tied from the Troika, and soon, would undermine the integrity of Podemos”, the former Greek Minister of Finance underlines, speaking to the Spanish newspaper.
At the same time, Yanis Varoufakis points that, the particularly cruel stance by the European Union against Greece during the negotiations, had a clear target to limit the rise of Pablo Iglesias' party in Spain.
“They didn't succeed completely. But they achieved to prevent Podemos to gain a potential, similar to that of SYRIZA during 2014, and therefore, they prevented Podemos to get close to form a government”, the former Minister of Finance points.
