League want to keep early retirement promise

League wants to retain election promise of early retirement


At the League federal council in Rome, members of the political party led by Matteo Salvini agreed to stand by fiscal election pledges. These include a flat rate tax and early retirement.

On Tuesday, the consensus among the members of Matteo Salvini’s League party taking part in the group’s federal council in Rome was that it should stand by election pledges to introduce a flat tax at 15% for people earning up to €100,000. They also want to stand y their promise of  making it easier for people to take early retirement, sources said.

The League proposes a pension reform that would make it possible for people to retire early if they have 41 years of social-security contributions. The party also wants the incoming centre-right government to adopt large-scale measures to help people with soaring energy prices.

On Monday, Confindustria President Carlo Bonomi said that “we cannot afford to contemplate a flat tax and early retirement” arguing it would put too much pressure on the public finances.
