The bill which are officially “Measures to speed up the government work and other provisions,” includes a series of positive actions with special emphasis on measures for the relief of people.

The government has been committed, despite the difficult conditions, to support the weakest classes along with the implementation of the prior actions, in order to proceed with the evaluation and the beginning of the debate on the debt, and this bill is part of its social programme.
