Ex­perts balk on pen­sions

Kathimerini English - - Focus - ROULA SALOUROU

The much an­tic­i­pat­ed­set of con­clu­sions by the team of ex­perts on the so­cial se­cu­rity sys­tem, de­liv­ered yesterday to La­bor Min­is­ter Gior­gos Ka­trouga­los, con­tained no fig­ures and left the gov­ern­ment to de­cide on all the tough is­sues, such as pen­sion cuts, new taxes, the ad­just­ment of con­tri­bu­tions and in­come cri­te­ria for pen­sion lev­els. Although the min­is­te­rial de­ci­sion de­ter­min­ing the task of the so-called Com­mit­tee of Wise Men dic­tated the draft­ing of an ac­tu­ar­ial re­port and a law pro­posal re­gard­ing so­cial se­cu­rity re­form, the doc­u­ment sub­mit­ted yesterday con­tained noth­ing of the sort, cit­ing lack of time and the need for more pro­cess­ing.
