ND elections program pledges €2,000 for every child born in Greece

We have being there, we have heard this. All these promises made by politicians in the government or main opposition party in elections years: Money will pour down, no matter what.

In this sense, the latest pledge by main opposition New Democracy are just another promise leader Kyriakos Mitsotakis may find out he won’t be able to fulfill due to cash shortage…

Conservative New Democracy would pledge 2,000 euros for every child born in Greece as part of its program if it comes to power in the next elections, party spokesperson Maria Spyraki told reporters on Monday, according to kathimerini.

The party’s program is effectively aimed at the Greek family, Spyraki said, noting that the measure in question is intended to encourage young Greek couples to have children and to curb a plunging birth rate.

Another key aim of the program is the creation of “lots of well-paid jobs,” the spokesperson added.

Additional measures include reduction to the ENFIA property tax and to social security contributions, she added.
