Confident that his government is stable with a safe majority in parliament, following the loss of two MPs from the ruling coalition at last week’s reform bill vote, Tsipras said that he will proceed with a “comprehensive reform in order to create a more just and viable retirement system”, presenting a plan to all political powers and social stakeholders and seeking to foster consensus through a national dialogue. Tsipras said that a dialogue with opposition parties was also needed to work on other reforms, e.g. to the education system and to the Constitution. “Radical reforms require broad consensus and I believe that most political forces are mature for such a discussion”, he emphasized.
