Those eligible for social benefits will receive their childcare allowance along with their other benefits on a social card, thus we will put an end to having children only for the benefits.
  • We will welcome and support everybody who wants to join the majority in building the country, but we will apply law enforcement measures and exclusion from the social care system to discipline those who fail to do their duty.
