Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis has called on all Greek politicians to deposit 50% of their salary over the next two months to boost the anti- coronation account.
In particular, Kyriakos Mitsotakis states in a post on his facebook: “I urge ND Members, Ministers and Deputy Ministers to deposit half of their salary over the next two months to boost the special account against the coronavirus. The political world must stand at the forefront of solidarity.”
In the same message, the Prime Minister calls on the other political parties to do the same in order to give a clear message against the coronavirus.
Athens mayor Kostas Bakoyannis has already jumped on board for the initiative, taking a 50% pay cut over the next two months to help fight coronavirus.
“It is the least I can offer,” Bakoyannis said in a post on social media, while calling for solidarity in fighting the crisis.
Greece’s reported death of the coronavirus rose to 43 on Monday, recording 56 new cases.
