“Despite the fact that the bill that the Government is bringing to the Plenary Assembly today has raised a storm of reactions from a number of workers with the handbrake characteristic of Mass Transport, the Government of Mr. Mitsotakis still remains unrepentantly neoliberal” said the SYRIZA MP

Regarding the bill of the Ministry of Finance on corporate governance that is being discussed today in the Parliament, the member of parliament of Heraklion of SYRIZA-Progressive Alliance Nikos Igoumenidis made the following statement:

“Despite the fact that the bill that the Government is bringing to the Plenary Session today has raised a storm of reactions from a number of workers with the handbrake characteristic of Mass Transport, the Government of Mr. Mitsotakis still remains unrepentantly neoliberal.

Among many other things, with this bill the “staff” Minister of Finance will be able “by his decision” and “freely” – as article 25 of the bill typically says – to dispose of securities that have been transferred to the State and in particular shares not listed on the stock exchange without giving an account to anyone and bypassing all the services and units of the Ministry whose role is simply superfluous.

In addition, with a multitude of non-transparency provisions in recruitment, in contracts with dominant direct assignments, in matters of internal control and procurement, Mr. Mitsotakis attempts to discredit and diminish public control in any public activity. He tries to make – my old sieve art – the public as loot to serve the financial elite with whom he stands hand in hand. But society has now reached its limits and tolerance of these practices can no longer be tolerated.”
