among the other major issues in the election year, the relations with the EU. For Levrat it is not clear that the framework agreement is a majority in its present Form is capable of. It would not be rejected at the ballot box, even if the SP was.
The SP to an agreement, but wants to take the concessions on wage protection in the purchase. It is not a game to be a little something and also not a power, stressed Levrat. It is in the country with the highest wages and the highest in-migration the wage rate of effective protection.
