The EU Commission, as widely expected, on Wednesday conveyed its concern over a series of pre-election pledges by the current Tsipras government, warning of the negative impact they will have - if implemented - on Greece's closely scrutinized finances.

A report on the third post-bailout "enhanced supervision" directly expresses the EU executive's concerns, without mincing its words, regardless of the fact that Greece is now amid a campaign season - snap elections will be held on July 7,

"...
