  • [01] State Minister Flambouraris rules out the withdrawal of pension reforms bill

    "The government is not discussing the withdrawal of the bill on pension reforms," State Minister Alekos Flambouraris said in an interview with RealNews newspaper on Sunday.

    Flambouraris underlined that the social security reforms are "absolutely necessary and urgent."

    "Unless reforms are made, funds will not be in a position to grant pensions in the next few years," he said and added: "The government is discussing any proposal that can really improve the social security system."

    Regarding the reactions of the society, the State Minister cleared out that the government does not need polarization and expressed the view that the society is not against the government, because it recognizes that the government policy seeks "to defend the interests of the overwhelming majority of the Greek people, especially of low incomers."
