    [02] Labour Minister: Indirect taxes unfair

    Labour Minister Panos Skourletis, speaking on Tuesday to ANT1 TV, called the indirect taxes unfair, while referring to the changes on VAT he said that transactions that were uncontrolled until today will be checked.

    Regarding the Uniform Real Estate Ownership Tax (ENFIA), Skourletis quoted prime minister statements that "ENFIA will be abolished but the date is closely connected with the conditions".

    "Nobody can make predictions while a negotiation is underway," said the minister referring in parralel to SYRIZA's campaign that "what we want to do during the first and the second year of our governance, must be extended to a four-year period".

    He asked from the society to show 'patience' which he believes that the citizens are willing to show if they understand that the current government "will change the course". The result of the abolition and suspension is the same, he said referring to the zero deficit clause for which he noted that will not be implemented and pledged that it will be abolished in September.

    On Labour ministry's draft law, he said that the deliberation has been completed and it will be submitted to parliament very soon.
