Minister Tsakalotos: The draft budget is the best possible under the current terms

Euclid Tsakalotos, Minister of Finance, said that the current draft budget is not fair, but it is the best possible, taking into consideration the current conditions, and he noted that it tries to reverse the negative impacts of policies that would have more severe consequences.

Also, he replied to the claims of New Democracy (ND) that the draft budget is following a policy of austerity, underlining that the European People’s Party (EPP), which is the European family of ND, is passionately promoting austerity policies, as a means of further implementing neoliberal reforms. To conclude, he highlighted that many restrictions that the government’s plans have limitations and restrictions, due to the European Union and the system built by ND.
