Mitsotakis stresses need for reforms to the benefit of many
“I do not want to produce wealth for wealth, but to create social solidarity reserve. Our goal should be the welfare of citizens,” he underlined.
Referring to pension reforms, he said that the government’s plan promotes social automation and the fragmentation of the society, as it offers privileges to specific parts of the population at the expense of others.
He also leveled criticism against the government on the refugee issue saying that “we have a three-month deadline to meet our commitments and if we do not do so, we are facing the risk of a de facto two-year exclusion from the treaty.”
Finally, he stressed that the refugee issue is above all a security issue.
