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 - A rapprochement of sorts that has seen tensions dialed down between them doesn’t mean Greece isn’t still wary of Greece, said Defense Minister Nikos Dendias, saying there is still an “existential threat” despite warmer ties.
