Androulakis: Greece Needs a Strong Progressive Policy

ATHENS – “Here in Patras, also, it is clear that inequality is [rapidly increasing], that high prices are ravaging the income of Greek citizens, creating huge problems in competitiveness and, unfortunately, decisions commensurate with the problem are not being taken,” opposition PASOK-KINAL leader Nikos Androulakis said in statements from the port city of Patras on Friday.

He called for the immediate introduction of a ceiling on fuel adjustment clauses charged by electricity utilities and the taxation of excessive profits earned by big power companies.

Androulakis underlined that “the country needs a strong progressive policy and a different plan to that being implemented by the government.”

Asked on the possibility of early elections, Androulakis replied: “[Deciding to hold] elections is the privilege of every prime minister. Whenever they are held, we will be fully ready to offer a real alternative to the Greek people”.
