Communist Party of Greece (KKE) MPs on Wednesday accused ruling PASOK and main opposition New Democracy MPs of hypocrisy, in response to their positions in favour of reducing MP salaries.
The party's Parliamentary group once again presented its own proposals for the abolition of a series of MP privileges, which it said had "stumbled on the obstinate refusal of those that today raise the banner of cleansing".
The proposals included the abolition of MP pensions, the drastic reduction of the salary paid to MPs and the abolition of payments for participating in committees, the obligatory conversion of anonymous company shares to shares of known ownership and  the abolition of privacy protecting taxation information, bank accounts, commercial and business transactions.
