The Parliament voted by a large majority, for the 120 installments and the amendments for the 13th pension and the VAT reduction in food, catering services and energy.

“We are correcting the injustices of the crisis and the memorandums,” said the prime minister, marking the 13th pension as symbolic, and left open the possibility of further relief at the end of the year, due to the economy’s positive course.

At the same time, the amendment tabled in Parliament provides for larger discounts on ENFIA for 2019 and concerns most homeowners, without however, breaching the 100 euro discount limit.
