Achtsioglou: Pending Pensions Have Increased by at Least 50%

ATHENS — "In just a few months of New Democracy (ND) rule, pending pensions have increased by at least 50 pct," SYRIZA's deputy responsible for labour issues Effie Achtsioglou said on Thursday citing an article published in 'Kathimerini' newspaper.

She added that the budget office of the Parliament and the General Accounting Office of the State have already said this as well as the Eurogroup, "but (Labour Minister Yiannis) Vroutsis insists on saying the opposite."

Achtsioglou said that "it is not a very difficult decision who to consider more reliable."


ATHENS - Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis participated via remote connection in the 2nd Summit for Democracy 2023 co-hosted by the United States State Department on Wednesday.
