Mr. Bakoyiannis spoke about the unanimous decision of the Athens municipal council to request an adjustment of the objective values that caused exorbitant increases of up to 95% in the city's properties and especially in areas where low-income households live. "Increases that exceed 90% are objectively 100% unfair," the Mayor stressed, adding that on the one hand there is a lack of framework and on the other hand the distortions that affect our most vulnerable fellow citizens must be corrected.
