SYRIZA’s Charitsis: Every passing day the data and the reality prove the gov’t wrong

Main opposition SYRIZA-Progressive Alliance MP responsible for development and investments Alexis Charitsis on Thursday stressed the need for immediate measures against the price hike, adding that “the more the government insists on inertia, the heaviest will be the consequences for the society”.

Charitsis made the statement after the announcement of inflation data according to which inflation rate jumped to 5.1% in December from 4.8% in November.

“Every day that passes the data and the reality prove the government wrong. The inflation rate that hit a record number and reached 5.1 pct in December proves that the price hike is now established and it concerns food and staple good and is threating the social cohesion”, Charitsis said.
