New Democracy Leader on Social Security Proposal: Govt Punishing Working People

kyriakos-mitsotakis-5Greek main opposition New Democracy leader Kyriakos Mitsotakis, fresh from his victory in an internal party election for president, sharply criticized the SYRIZA-led government on Friday for crushing self-employed professionals, recently hired people and pensioners with its policies.
He made the statement after a meeting with the Athens Bar Association president, Vassilis Alexandris. The two men reportedly discussed a hotly contested proposal by the Greek government to increase social security contributions in order to shore up Greece’s feeble pension system.
“In other words, the government is punishing the work of the people that the Greek economy so desperately needs to restart. Every day that goes by, it is made more obvious that the SYRIZA-ANEL coalition governmnet is seriously hurting Greece,” Mitsotakis said.
