Mitsotakis promises to support Greece's most vulnerable as a "permanent government priority"

Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis

Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis said that his government's "priority" was to help the most vulnerable people in the country.

The prime minister also referred to the double meaning of the finance ministry's draft bill under discussion in parliament.

Mitsotakis underlined that the regulation for land that has been trespassed upon will benefit thousands of households and businesses that had been in "hostage status" for decades.

"It solves with transparency and justice a 'gordian knot' between the state and citizens," he added.

Mitsotakis underlined that the beneficiaries will be able to legally purchase the plots.

The bill of the finance ministry also includes a series of tax regulations, the prime minister said during his speech in parliament.

"Targeted support for the most vulnerable is a permanent government priority. We understand the citizens' needs, listen to their problems and always strive for the best," he stressed.

Elsewhere, Mitsotakis addressed an open meeting on Tuesday at the western suburb of Peristeri, base of his constituency and political home "that I enjoy returning to every time," as he said.

He spoke of his 20 years in politics, beginning witgh an open meeting by Kostas Karamanlis in Egaleo in 2003, and said his government will continue to be close to citizens.

"We have more energy, experience, and we will change Greece," the PM said, calling on voters to support his party of New Democracy and declare "we do not want to return to the past again."
