Three questions for the parties

1. According to reliable surveys, Greece is no longer the European Union’s «cheap market» but is as expensive as countries in northern Europe. Rising prices have not been accompanied by a rise in incomes. What policy will your party follow, if elected, in order to achieve a balance between wages and the cost of living? 2. The unprecedented wave of price rises ushered in by conversion to the euro is a major burden on Greek households and is still continuing. What does your party plan to do to lighten the burden? 3. Consumers keep lodging complaints that vendors at street markets are selling their goods at much higher prices than cost, because of middlemen. How can these prices be reduced?
