Greece's new coalition government has vowed to repeal some of the country's taxes, stop job lay-offs and extend by two years the deadlines for the austerity measures imposed by its international bailout.
The policy statement issued by the three-party administration came as the country's new Prime Minister, Antonis Samaras, had eye surgery while finance minister Vassilis Rapanos remains in hospital after he fell ill on Friday.
The statement said: "The general aim is no more cuts to salaries and pensions, no more taxes."
Mr Samaras's conservative New Democracy party came first in the June 17 elections but did not win enough votes to govern alone. His party is now in government with its long-time rivals Pasok and the small Democratic Left party.
While pledging to stick to the terms of the bailout from, all three parties are seeking to renegotiate certain aspects of the loan with the so-called Troika: the EU, European Central Bank and International Monetary Fund.
Greece is mired in the fifth year of a deep recession and has seen unemployment rocket to 22%. Widespread anger with rapidly falling living standards has led to a massive increase in support for so-called anti-bailout parties in the last two elections.
Meanwhile, the new government says it aims to extend by at least two years the deadlines for it to impose harsh fiscal measures "to support demand, development (and) employment".
Reducing consumer tax on restaurants and agriculture will also be sought, and one-year unemployment benefit may be extended by another year. It says it will also seek to extend unemployment benefit to self-employed people who have lost their businesses, and gradually increase the tax-free income limit to European averages.
The coalition says it plans to restore collective wage agreements "to the level defined by European social law" and review cuts to the national minimum wage which was slashed by 22% this year to just 580 euro (£468) a month so Greece could receive a second bailout.
Debt inspectors from the European Commission, European Central Bank and IMF are due to return to Athens on Monday to resume talks, on hold because of the country's nearly two-month political deadlock.
