Reforms: If not now, when?

The pre-election period was long, and exhausting. It essentially started in January and ended six months later. The fatigue of government officials and party cadres is reasonable and a given. In a small country like Greece, parties don't have the luxury of having one team that prepares the government program for the next four years and another that runs the pre-election campaign.

Relief measures bill up for consultation this week

The package of relief measures announced by Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis in Parliament this past week as part of his policy statements will be introduced in three stages: this year, 2024, and 2025-2026.

A draft law containing New Democracy's campaign commitments for the elections held May 21 and June 25 is expected to be posted for public consultation this week.

‘Multidimensional reform’ and society

The election result proved that Kyriakos Mitsotakis and his aides are better than their rivals at reading society. That is why, with the winner's large bonus in seats, New Democracy enjoys a comfortable majority in Parliament, where the prime minister on Thursday announced his government's policy for the next four years. 

Old and new causes at play as far-right makes return in Greece

New Democracy's strategy of capitalizing on sensitive political issues that appeal to far-right audiences during Greece's general election, where the conservatives achieved a landslide victory over their leftist rivals, also fueled the rise of fringe parties, according to political analysts.

Mitsotakis vows to ‘fix sins of past’ during new term

Re-elected Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis has pledged his conservative government would "fix the sins of the past" and over the next four years cut taxes, boost wages and pensions, and repay bailout debts earlier than expected.

Mitsotakis, 55, won 158 seats in the 300-seat parliament in a June 25 national election, securing a clear majority to push ahead with his plan.
