An extra financial aid is to be given to the low-level pensioners at Christmas. However, this has not only caused tensions between the Greek government and the Institutions, but it does not seem that it will appease the reactions against the new changes in the pension system.

The declarations of the Greek PM A.Tsipras regarding the extra financial aid, as well as the “freezing” of the VAT increase for the Aegean islands due to the refugee crisis, has lead members of the ESM and the Eurogroup into stating that the process related to debt relief is postponed. However, this does not mean that it is not going to be reactivated some time in the future.
