Meimarakis: Potential Tax Increases Will be Harmful to Greek Economy and Society

If the government imposes any more taxes on Greek citizens, the results will be disastrous for the economy and society, main opposition leader Vangelis Meimarakis said, on Monday.

“I keep hearing government members speak of new extraordinary taxes for employees, the self-employed, shopkeepers, small and medium-sized entrepreneurs. Obviously these are the measures they were concealing before the elections and they reveal them now,” the leader of New Democracy said.

“One thing is for sure: If these measures proceed, the result will be catastrophic both for the real economy and the entire society,” he added.
