Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis referred to the government’s plan for counteracting the adverse impact of the coming difficult winter and the unprecedented energy crisis caused by the Russian invasion of Ukraine, at the start of his meeting with the President of the Hellenic Republic Katerina Sakellaropoulou at the Presidential Mansion.

“It is our obligation to be active at the national and European level. At the national level we are implementing a plan to support electricity bills through the elimination of the adjustment clause and the recycling of the surplus profits of electricity producers. Next week, interventions will be announced to reduce the price of natural gas … but also an expanded heating allowance,” said the prime minister.

Mitsotakis insisted that all the interventions that have been made or are about to be made constitute a framework of protection so that households can get through the difficult winter that is coming, as he said. He also pointed out that the government’s plan is based on two axes – firstly, on supporting households and businesses and, secondly, on meeting the non-negotiable, as he called it, goal of fiscal adjustment: “Everything we do is measured,” he underlined.

The prime minister made extensive reference to the axes of the plan for cheap housing for young people, young couples and students, speaking of an impressive response from young people and underlining that this is the first priority for the government. At the European level, the prime minister insisted on the adoption of his proposal to impose a ceiling on international natural gas prices and not only on Russian natural gas and noted that he regrets that Brussels and EU member-states have not yet managed to reach an agreement.
“The crisis burdens households and businesses and affects the weakest. I am glad that Europe is now aware of the problem and is looking for solutions,” the President of the Hellenic Republic Katerina Sakellaropoulou said, adding: “The surplus profits generated by electricity producers must be distributed to the weakest.”
