Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

Greece’s coali­tion lead­ers are likely to have to take a decision in the next few days on how the coun­try will reach the tar­get of dis­miss­ing another 5,500 em­ploy­ees from the pub­lic sec­tor by the end of the year.

Sources told Kathimerini that Ad­min­is­tra­tive Re­form Min­is­ter Kyr­i­akos Mitsotakis is meet­ing re­sis­tance from cab­i­net col­leagues and will prob­a­bly have to re­fer the mat­ter to Prime Min­is­ter An­to­nis Sa­ma­ras and Deputy Premier Evan­ge­los Venizelos for a fi­nal decision.

Some 2,000 ad­min­is­tra­tive staff, 1,800 con­tract work­ers, 850 Trans­port Min­istry em­ploy­ees and civil ser­vants found guilty of of­fenses are set to make up the 5,500 the gov­ern­ment has to find.
