Greek prime minister Alexis Tsipras continues to be heavily critisised for the deal he signed with his FYROM counterpart Zoran Zaev regarding the naming dispute. Protestors have continued to vent their anger at the agreement on both sides of the border.


The main opposition New Democracy said the agreement was detrimental to the national interest for recognizing a Macedonian language and ethnicity. “Today is a sad day for Greece, but it is also a day of shame” for Alexis Tsipras and his right-wing coalition partner Panos Kammenos, accusing them of “binding Greece to a deal that will be extremely difficult to reverse in the future.’ ND also criticised the government for a police crackdown on protesters demonstrating against the deal.
