SYRIZA’s Charitsis: The gov’t insists on remaining inert

“While new hikes on prices, over 20 percent, are expected for staple food, the government insists on remaining inert for months,” main opposition SYRIZA-Progressive Alliance MP responsible for development and investments Alexis Charitsis stated on Wednesday, warning that “the huge price hikes are a threat to social cohesion.”

“Today the government’s spokesperson and the Development Minister pre-announced a VAT reduction on staple food, and in less than an hour the Finance Minister denied it,” Charitsis said, adding that things would be very comical if they were not so serious.
“A new beginning is necessary,” he concluded.
