Gov't will keep 80% of campaign promises

The government should be able to keep 80% of the campaign promises it made when it was elected in 2002, and 100% of the ones it made to retirees, the finance minister said yesterday. János Veres was addressing members of the Socialist Party in Budapest. He added that the 80% was a good proportion since within it, wages and salaries would be going up by 30%, more than the 25% it had called for, and pension were rising by even more than that. Tax cuts to take effect next year will lead to a revenue decline, Veres said. (MTI)
