“The social security bill is the penultimate bill that, before the draft law on agriculture, is causing trouble,” stated Independent Greeks (ANEL) leader and Defence Minister Panos Kammenos on Thursday said in an interview with private ANT1 TV, noting however, that a very constructive dialogue is held with Labour Minister George Katrougalos who is open to new proposals.

Kammenos said that the government’s proposal gives, for the first time, solution to the social security funds adding that if there are no changes, the social security system will never become sustainable provided that the pensioners outnumber the workers.

He claimed that the government gives lenders a sustainable and well-founded proposal noting that if there wasn’t the SYRIZA-ANEL government, the pensions would be 220-250 euros. “After very harsh negotiations, we managed to protect the pensions,” he said adding that “after the social security system we will discuss the debt reduction that the IMF and Europe request.”

Referring to growth, he explained the opportunities for the economy in the sector of tourism, mineral resources and defence industry.
