Giving parliamentary minorities greater power
Limiting the immunity for MPs, so that it only covers political actions
Extending the powers of the President of the Hellenic Democracy
Providing incentives for investments
Bolstering the independence of the judiciary
Abolishing the state monopoly in higher education
Simplifying constitutional review procedures
Streamlining the Constitution and abolishing bureaucratic provisions
