“There are no people seeking food in the garbage bins as in 2014,” Culture Minister Elena Kountoura said adding that citizens congratulate the government for its social policies.
People are congratulating the government because “in 2014 there were people struggling to have a meal on their table. It is a success that people do not eat from the garbage anymore, “Kountoura from junior coalition partner Independent Greeks claimed speaking to private Skai TV on Saturday morning. “Despite the difficulties, people manage it.”
“At least, Greeks are now living in dignity,” she said further adding “we brought growth.”
She claimed further that “no minister cuts pensions, no minister introduces taxes.”
The Culture Minister said further that “we have ten difficult months ahead” until the Greek program ends in August 2018.
She said that also this year was an unprecedented success for the tourism industry saying that “90% of the capacity” was fully booked.
PS no taxes, no pension cuts? I propose, Minister Kountoura to take a fresh look into the 2015 bailout agreement and the additional agreement the coalition government signed last May in order to enable the conclusion of the second review. As for the meals from garbage bins… well… I wonder why neighbors still leave bags with food on the street, bags that quickly disappear. Probably they didn’t hear of the growth and the government success story.
