Imminent is the danger of implementing "horizontal" measures in Greece as the EC-ECB-IMF Troika auditors insist on the implementation of new austerity measures amounting to 1.3 billion Euros. They also doubt the effectiveness of restructuring (mainly in the social security sector) by which the government expects to cover the fiscal gap. International lenders demand the issue of foreclosures to be resolved, while the government, in order to curb their demands, threat with political destabilisation in the country.
According to sources, Development minister put the matter to the Troika auditors, Mazuch, Thomsen and Morse, forewarning of a potential loss of the coalition government cohesion.
At the same time, Troika opens up new issues as they add another 400 million to the fiscal gap of 2014 due to real estate taxation and refuse cuts of 200-250 million Euros to the Public Investment Programme.
They also insist on new measures for the year 2015.
