The programme of New Democracy is a chance for the party to show that it stays away from the populist bubbles, that it adopts the best European practices and that it represents Greece’s European reformist centre-right, New Democracy vice president Costas Hatzidakis on Tuesday said in statements to Vima FM.

Asked on government’s proposal for the social security he said: “Τhe budget that the government submitted to the parliament refers to 1.8 billion euro interventions to the social security … If we want to be serious and responsible, we need to be aware of specific figures. The condition in the specific sector has worsened due to the government’s maneuvers and the economic situation has deteriorated. So, while the government is trying to promote its social policy, unemployment has increased by 200,000 people and social security contributions have been reduced respectively. This is the government’s economic and pension policy and what they are trying to do is to make us, New Democracy, their accomplices.”
