ATHENS — Government spokesperson Christos Tarantilis stressed that the government continues to support households and businesses with special purpose compensations, support programmes, suspensions of tax and insurance obligations, the payment by the state a large part of the cost of rent and, of course, the successive repayable advance programmes.
He also added that with a legislative provision that will be submitted to Parliament in the coming days, significant facilities will be granted for the payment of securities.
The government spokesperson referred to the prime minister's programme, noting that: "On Friday, the prime minister – using Article 142A of the Rules of Procedure of the Parliament – will inform the national delegation and through it the citizens on the course of the pandemic in our country and the course of vaccination. There will be a discussion on the level of political leaders, openly and not behind closed doors. We are waiting – beyond any criticism – for specific positions and proposals for the collective good," concluded Tarantilis.
