KINAL on the Result of the Informal EU Summit

ATHENS – Opposition Movement for Change (KINAL), in an announcement on Friday regarding the outcome of the informal EU Summit, referred to “the conservative reflexes of many European governments that lead again to a ‘freezing’ of the proposal for the issue of a eurobond, as happened in the past when only the PASOK government and the social-democratic leaderships in Europe were asking for it and were met with blind refusal from the European Right.”

At the same time, the same announcement noted, adoption of a common set of measures to cope with energy costs is postponed until the next EU Summit. “The government should, as it did then, put a halt to the surge in the prices of fuel, staple goods, electricity and natural gas that blowing household budgets sky-high,” it said.

KINAL asked for measures here and now and urged the government to heed KINAL’s proposals, including: reducing VAT on staple goods, reducing the special tax on fuel, a cap to the “adjustment clauses” for electricity bills and direct levy on the windfall profits of power suppliers.
