Energy Minister Skourletis: There will be pension cuts
“The louder the voices in Europe, the more things we will do that are not included in the agreement,” said Environment and Energy Minister Panos Skourletis on Friday. “Never before was there such a statement coming from so high as President Francois Hollande,” he added.
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.
