President Iohannis: We have inflation that exceeds 15pct; it would be reasonable for pensions to increase considering this

Published on

President Klaus Iohannis stated on Thursday that it would be reasonable for the increase of pensions, as of 1 January 2023, to take into account the inflation which exceeds 15 percent, according to Agerpres.

„If we’re talking about the increase of pensions, we must see the wider context a bit. I know that all types of proposals have been spread around: 10 percent, 11 percent, but let’s see the bigger picture, we cannot expect pensioners to pay they price of crises and, taking into account we have an inflation which exceeds 15 percent, I believe it would be fair, reasonable for this increase of pensions, as of 1 January, to take into account this inflation and then, the increase, in my opinion, should be higher than it had been spread around so far. I don’t know if the budget allows this increase up to 15 percent, as people would expect to have a fair compensation in relation to inflation, but I believe that it’s worth taking all options into consideration and come up with an increase which can compensate well the inflation, and another aspect which I, personally, see as essential; a special, increased attention must be paid to those with low pensions, because the biggest issues emerge there,” the head of state said prior to attending the meeting of the European Council.
