Venizelos: No New Taxes, Wage, or Pension Cuts If His Party Gets Vote

Greece’s socialist party leader Evangelos Venizelos has promised no new taxes, or across-the-board wage and pension cuts, if his party participates in a coalition government after the May 6 early election.
Speaking in front of a select audience of party officials Saturday, the former finance minister said he expected no single party to be able to form a government after the vote.
Venizelos said if his party, PASOK, were to enter a coalition a priority would be to slowly wean Greece off the restrictions of two emergency loan agreements and into self-sustaining growth by 2015.
He said that the slashing of more than half of Greece’s privately held debt will help inject liquidity into the market and a stable tax regime over the next ten years will boost growth.
