Papademos is expected to meet with all three party leaders, once again, on Saturday, to rally their support amid pressure from the troika for the three politicians to offer guarantees demonstrating their commitment to the economic reforms. Earlier on Friday Labor and Social Insurance Minister Giorgos Koutroumanis was meeting with the troika. He was expected to defend the 13th and 14 salaries, following discussions with labor unions and business associations which vehemently oppose such as measure. According to sources, Koutroumanis is expected to counterpropose the introduction of flexibility into the labor market by allowing enterprises in specific sectors to draw up work contracts. On the other thorny issue of auxiliary pensions, the troika’s demand is that another 650 million euros in cuts be carried out over the next three years.
