Gerapetritis: The Separation of Government and Administration a Big Step

ATHENS — The "executive state" has improved the quality of democracy, State Minister Giorgos Gerapetritis said on Wednesday during the 6th Dephi Economic Forum, adding that this will be "a great legacy for future generations of politicians."

The main improvement of the new model is the separation of government and administration: currently, roughly 80 pct of the material of a ministry is produced by the administration itself, while bureaucracy produces over 70 pct, he noted.

Corruption and clientelist relations have been reduced thanks to the new system, while the presence of the new model of governance during the pandemic was absolutely decisive, he added.

"Within 2021 a big reform is expected to take place that will concern multi-level governance, which means responsibilities, independent resources, accountability for municipalities and regions, in other words the transfer of a significant body of work where it belongs, in local administration and therefore close to the citizen."


ATHENS - The President of the Hellenic Republic Katerina Sakellaropoulou received main opposition SYRIZA-Progressive Alliance party leader Stefanos Kasselakis at the Presidential Mansion earlier on Tuesday.
