Pensions and teachers

In response to the parliamentary leader, the prime minister would have to live after anyone who had imagined such a large country, in which, times of war, a pandemic, there would be a pandemic in Europe.

The budget that you failed – and that recently failed again – and finally came into force, will allow us to pay back in January the extraordinary pension that we have committed to all pensioners, 1068 euros ”, he said.
On the other hand, the council of ministers on matters of greater importance is considered a problem.
