President briefed on labour law

Labour Minister Andreas Loverdos on Friday briefed President Karolos Papoulias on the changes to labour law agreed between the government and representatives of the IMF, the ECB and the European Commission and on other issues that fall under the labour ministry’s purview.
Speaking before reporters, President Papoulias told Loverdos that these are “tough times”, expressing the hope that “a fight will be given to limit the losses and convince society that the sacrifices made will bring better days.”
On his part, the labour minister admitted that “times are very difficult”, stressing that he finds “strength in the faith that the efforts made by the government are aimed at salvaging the country.”
“No personal or political cost will be taken into account during this effort,” he said.
Loverdos expressed the belief that the country will overcome this ordeal “through our own efforts”, pointing out that “we are making an effort in consultation with our partners and lenders to take the measures we have to take while, at the same time, safeguarding as much as we can in these difficult circumstances.”
He pointed out that there have been no other proposals on behalf of the troika (IMF, ECB, EC) and added that “we will see in the process how these relations will be shaped.”
