Prime Minister Viorica Dancila said on Thursday, at the beginning of the Government meeting, that the first budget rectification of this year is positive, a rectification that ensures "increased payment of salaries and pensions and the continuation of the investment projects in priority areas." "We are discussing in the Government meeting today the first budget rectification this year.
The previous government's omission to place a cap on pensions shows that the so-called Katrougalos law on social security (named after former labor minister Giorgos Katrougalos, who introduced it) was haphazardly drafted.
This is after all why many of its clauses, so many years after it was passed in Parliament, remain unenforced.
President Klaus Iohannis on Monday signed a decree promulgating the Law on the Public Pension System adopted by the Chamber of Deputies on June 26, in a re-examined form adjusted for a ruling of the Constitutional Court (CCR).
