Tsipras: 'We Need A New Social Contract in Europe'

The European Union needs to return to its founding principles, Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras said on Wednesday while addressing the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (PACE) plenum in Strasbourg, following a series of meetings with Council of Europe and PACE officials.
"We need more Europe, better Europe....We need a new social contract for Europe," Tsipras said, stressing that Europe was in a deep crisis and unable to convince its peoples to support it. Citing labour issues in Greece as an example, Tsipras noted that the country needed a reorganisation of laws in a labour market that was already flexible, not to demolish it entirely.
