“The greatest achievement is clearly the exit from the memorandum, something that almost nobody could imagine three years ago,” government spokesman Dimitris Tzanakopoulos said on Sunday in an interview.
“The 2019 budget was not just the first post-memorandum budget but also the first expansionary budget after ten years,” Tzanakopoulos noted.
He underlined that the increase in the minimum wage in January 2019 will be a significant moment for the government adding that further measures to support the society will be implemented next year.
As for the renegotiation of the high primary surpluses, he said that it is very difficult because it would mean the total alteration of the debt settlement that the government has achieved.
The government spokesman estimated that elections will take place in autumn and SYRIZA will be the winner.
Referring to the Prespes Agreement, Tzanakopoulos said that “the government aims that at least the majority of the total number of MPs will vote the agreement.”
He also estimated that “there will be enough progressive MPs who will not want to miss that great, historic opportunity and lead the country to adventures.”
