FinMin Staikouras: Decision on amount for the socially vulnerable to be reached this week

"There is an amount that will be allocated to the socially vulnerable groups" stated Finance Minister Christos Staikouras on Sunday in interview with OPEN TV.
"The decision on the dividend deriving from the excessive surplus will be reached this week" he said.
The Finance Minister said that the 13th pension will be maintained adding that the 800 million euros offered by SYRIZA will remain.
Asked on what the government will do if the Council of State rules in favour of the pensioners' backpay, Staikouras said "we will pay them taking into consideration the fiscal restrictions and priorities".
He also said that the government's plan on tax reductions to households and enterprises will not change.
