Gennimata accuses Tsipras of ‘hijacking’ MFC proposal on tax allowance

Movement for Change (Kinima Allagis, KINAL) leader Fofi Gennimata on Wednesday accused Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras of “hijacking” her party’s proposal to reverse a reduction in the tax-free income allowance and bringing identical legislation to parliament, to undo a measure that his own government had legislated.

“In his panic, Tsipras was forced to vote for a proposal that we had already tabled in parliament for the abolition of the unacceptable reduction of tax-free income allowance that he has legislated. The citizens are aware of it,” she said.
