Skourletis said that everyone knew, before the national elections, the difficulties and the measures of the Greek programme and underlined that the social security system must be reformed and be based on the sense of solidarity. He also admitted that there will be a reduction in pensions but it will be gradual and with the view to protecting those who receive pension up to 1,000 euros.

He claimed that in the last seven months that SYRIZA was government, there were results in the tackling of tax evasion.
