  • [01] Opening of closed professions bill voted 'in principle'

    The parliament plenary passed a bill on deregulating the so-called "closed shop" professions in principle (first reading) on Wednesday night.

    The bill, which has drawn strong criticism from the opposition parties and the closed profession categories that will be 'opened', is the 'cornerstone' of the reforms being advanced by the government, and responds to the exclusion of young people from entering the economy on their own strength and knowledge, ruling PASOK rapporteur Markos Bolaris said.

    Main opposition New Democracy (ND) said it backs the philosophy of the 'opening' of the 'closed professions', but cannot vote for the bill because it is not founded on studies of the social repercussions and leads to de-organisation of the market.
