Government to Raise Minimum Wage, Tzanakopoulos Says

A hike in the minimum wage will be the first important step in a long series of measures aiming to boost the Greeks' income, government spokesman Dimitris Tzanakopoulos said on Sunday, in an interview with Athens-Macedonia News Agency (ANA). Tzanakopoulos told ANA that in the post-programme era, the government has been facing significant political and institutional challenges but is planning to implement further positive measures aimed at relieving and supporting Greek society.  "This government has managed to take the country out of the memoranda and stabilise the economy while providing social support," Tzanakopoulos noted, and added that the current parliamentary configuration guarantees that the SYRIZA-led coalition will complete the four-year term. Regarding the Prespes Agreement, Tzanakopoulos told ANA that it resolves the issues at stake in a manner that is balanced, fair and beneficial to Greek interests. He also expressed his certainty that all progressive political forces will "not let this historical opportunity go to waste," and that based on the expressed opinions of all political players an absolute majority can be reached.
