The IMF is asking for unfavorable changes in the social security system, but we will not accept them, Labor Minister Giorgos Katrougalos said on Monday in statements to ANT1 TV.
“The IMF has extreme views, but we do not concede,” he underlined adding that the social security issue has closed from the first program review.
He reiterated that the government has avoided the horizontal cuts on pensions and explained that only 220,000 or 10 percent of pensioners were affected.
Finally, Katrougalos reassured that the government will proceed with corrective measures for free-lancers and scientists as regards their insurance fees.
