Moscovici: Commission “takes no position” in Greek election campaign

The European Commissioner for Economic and Financial Affairs Pierre Moscovici on Tuesday said the European Commission “takes no position” in Greece’s election campaign.

On December 29, when snap elections were called for January 25, Moscovici had underlined the need for “broad support among the Greek voters and political leaders for the for the necessary growth-friendly reform process.”

That “does not constitute taking a position in the Greek political debate,” Moscovici said on Tuesday. “There is no call to vote one way or another,” he told reporters. “Greeks will freely choose their next leader.”
