Specifically, she warned farmers and white-collar professionals that if the measures that the government proposed are not implemented, there will be more cuts to main pensions. “If we don’t fight hard, then the IMF’s view may be implemented for further pension reductions,” she told. Furthermore, she warned that there may not be enough funds for pensions over the coming years.

The government is challenged with finding ways to cut 1.8 billion euros from social security funds in 2016 so as to be in line with the “zero clause”. Regarding farmers’ mobilisations at key road networks, Gerovasili said that she understands why the farmers have taken to the streets pointing to policies that have harmed the agriculture sector over the last few years. She excluded forcing farmers to open networks with use of violence.

Gerovasili also criticised the opposition parties, saying that they have “forgotten what they voted for” while noting that the SYRIZA-ANEL coalition was given the popular mandate to administrate the agreement reached with its partners.
