Mitsotakis Will Push Key Reforms During Summer, No Let-Up

ATHENS – Fresh off ramming through the Parliament legislation about child custody and labor rules, Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis isn't planning to pause his push for further reforms despite opposition from rival parties.

New Democracy controls the 300-member Parliament with 158 seats, rendering opposition essentially useless and Kathimerini said he's now turning toward legislation on supplementary pensions and requiring teachers to be evaluated.

The major opposition and former ruling SYRIZA is dead set against both, not wanting any evaluations of workers despite Greece's notorious reputation for inefficiency in the public workplace and not assessing performances.

The summer is usually a dead political season in Greece but Mitsotakis, on a roll, isn't letting up and could use the period to hold up further provisions of a SYRIZA deal that brought the name North Macedonia to Greece's northern neighbor, giving away the name of a Greek province.

Not only is he not reluctant to take on SYRIZA, but he's eager, the paper said, so that the Conservatives can further differentiate themselves from its main rival which is falling further in polls.
