  • [01] 350-400 mln euros still missing, Alternate FinMin says

    There is a deficit of 350-400 million euros which needs to be covered by April 27 in order for the country to meet its obligations and pay salaries and pensions, Alternate Finance Minister Dimitris Mardas said on Wednesday in statements to Mega TV.

    "We have a 350-400 million euro revenue deviation in order to meet the country's needs - including salaries and pensions - which can be covered by the end of the month," he underlined.

    Mardas called on mayors, who have been complaining about the transfer of their cash reserves to the Bank of Greece, to change their mind. He noted, however, that if they do not do so, there are other available funds.

    He also said that the timeline for the entities' cash reserves is three months adding that the government is not asking for anything excessive.

    [02] New Democracy lashes out at government on legislative acts

    Main opposition New Democracy on Wednesday lashed out at SYRIZA on its stance towards the previous government on the issue of legislative acts.

    More specifically, New Democracy said that SYRIZA had accused the previous government that "the country is governed with legislative acts" and had spoken of "a junta disguised in a parliamentary wrap."

    Although the majority of the legislative acts were beneficial for the people, SYRIZA did not vote for any of them "as a matter of principle," the main opposition noted.

    [03] Negotiations created an urgent and unexpected need, Alternate Admin.Reform Min Katrougalos tells ANA-MPA

    The negotiations with the partners have created an urgent and unexpected need that has to be immediately met, Alternate Administrative Reform Minister George Katrougalos said referring to the transfer of municipalities' cash reserves to Bank of Greece through a legislative act.

    He explained that in the past SYRIZA had opposed to the previous government's legislative acts because there was an abuse of this tactics in order to prevent deputies from expressing their views. "None of these factors still applies," the minister noted.

    Katrougalos reassured this will not 'loot' the cash reserves as it was the case with the PSI and this shows the hypocrisy of the opposition leaders that react today.
