  • [01] PASOK proposals on budgets

  • [01] PASOK proposals on budgets

    Main opposition Panhellenic Socialist Movement (PASOK) head of the party's economy department Vasso Papandreou on Monday presented the department's proposal on how state budgets should be drafted and implemented.

    "The current procedure has problems of effectiveness, transparency and the checking of the budget. The Greek Parliament usually votes one budget, while another budget is implemented. And the way with which a budget is drafted and implemented is of great importance for the utilisation and effectiveness of the state's expenditures," Vasso Papandreou said during a special event.

    She noted that "we should pass from the budgets which are passive tools and simply finance certain activities, in programme budgets, which means that clear targets and indexes of evaluation of the result are given."

    Papandreou added:"It has been proven from the countries which implement this system, that this way is very important for the confrontation of bureaucracy and introversion of the public sector, because at the same time the fiscal discipline is secured more effectively, and the social responsibility on all levels of public administration is strengthened."
