PM Mitsotakis in Kifissia: Greece in better shape today than it was in 2019


New Democracy's government was the one to raise the minimum wage by 20% to 780 euros, to introduce the digital work card so all overtime is recorded, and the one that gave fathers the right to a leave for newborn children, Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis said on Labor Day (Monday) at the Kifissia Shoppingland area.

In an attack on SYRIZA-Progressive Alliance and its leader Alexis Tsipras, Mitsotakis said the main opposition party sees everything in terms of gray and black, if one takes into account its election ads campaign. "The gray and miserable Greece was their Greece, which we left for good in 2019. Our Greece is more optimistic, brighter," the PM said, but acknowledged that "it is not a country without problems." High prices are still here and eating away at citizens' income, he noted, while the government supported households and businesses "with a series of tools to manage the imported high cost of living."

There is no doubt, however, he said, that any objective citizen regardless of party affiliation would be able to see that the country is in better shape than it was in 2019. "Greece is on the right path, and this path, this progress, is being recognized by everyone - by foreign rating agencies, by foreign analysts - and it is a progress that must continue," Mitsotakis said.
