AFP: Greek govt announces tax cuts, wins confidence vote23 July 2019 | 00:00 | FOCUS News Agency
Mitsotakis' New Democracy party defeated left-wing premier Alexis Tsipras in general elections earlier this month on a promise to end austerity and ease the purse strings.
He garnered 158 of 300 seats to give him a comfortable majority, with all his MPs backing his programme in parliament on Monday after three days of debate.
"We need to give a message of optimism that something is finally changing in this country," Mitsotakis said before the vote late Monday.
"The central challenge for Greece is to produce more wealth and to distribute it in a just manner," he added.
