Parbeszed projects 15-20 percent price increase for bread

Opposition Parbeszed projects a 15-20 percent increase in the price of bread resulting from a drastic rise in flour prices, the party's deputy group leader said on Thursday.

Sandor Burany told a press conference on Facebook that the price of bread had already grown by 30-40 percent over the past 3 years and this caused great difficulties to people with low income and pensions.

He noted that Parbeszed had submitted a proposal for a resolution to support social groups hit hard by “inflation breaking loose”.

Parbeszed has proposed doubling family allowances and child-care benefits, increasing the minimum wage and making it exempt from personal income tax, and changing the calculation of pensions in order to reflect the increase in wages, he added.

If Parbeszed enters government next year, it will pursue economic policies that support SMEs instead of multinationals, introduce tax policies with a focus on low earners and offer a “proper pension increase”, he said.
