The unreliability of the officer -mainly- opposition, emerged prominently in another legislative initiative of the Government with a significant social footprint.
And yet, the invincible in Syriza parochism, did not have the political courage to vote for a bill in principle, which included a plethora of positive arrangements and benefits for society, especially for the most vulnerable groups, such as measures for: child protection, sponsorship and adoption, the settlement of insurance debts of hundreds of thousands of professionals, doubling the Minimum Guaranteed Income for December 500.000 beneficiaries and its extension to homeless and abused women, the strengthening of welfare structures, the unrestricted benefits to financially weak elderly and expatriate refugees, the one-off financial support for professionals in scientific disciplines, doubling pensions for children who have lost both parents, the extension of the "housing and work" program for support 600 homeless families, extending deadlines and boosting maternity benefits and a number of other interventions that strengthen the welfare state and social cohesion.

The New Democracy government proves by deeds and not by words its commitment to social solidarity and cohesion!
