Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

New Democ­racy law­maker Kyr­i­akos Mit­so­takis has sent out an open letter to all MPs, call­ing for a re­duc­tion in the num­ber of deputies in Par­lia­ment and for MPs to give up cer­tain ben­e­fits as part of spend­ing cuts. Mit­so­takis pro­posed three changes – firstly that the num­ber of MPs in Par­lia­ment be re­duced to 200 from 300, se­condly the abo­li­tion of a par­lia­men­tary pen­sion (in ad­di­tion to the pen­sion MPs get from their pro­fes­sional fund) and thirdly the abo­li­tion of the ad­di­tional pay­ments given to deputies who head par­lia­men­tary com­mit­tees.
