Pension reform: a step in the right direction

16 December 2011

The N-VA considers Minister Van Quickenborne’s pension reform to be a step in the right direction. The party does, however, regret that the reform is apparently not applicable to everyone, contrary to what the Minister has stated in the press. “If we want to safeguard our prosperity, we will all have to work longer. People understand this, on the condition that it is done fairly and that everyone takes part,” states the N-VA. The party will not initiate any delaying manoeuvres in Parliament, but it is demanding that the Minister carry out a decent Parliamentary debate on this reform. Right now, it seems as if certain components of the reform shouldn’t see the light of day.
