  • [01] Parliament approves bill on prior actions with 153 votes

    Greek parliament approved in principle and by majority on Sunday the omnibus bill on the prior actions demanded by Greece's lenders to conclude the program review, with 153 votes in favour and 145 against. New Democracy MP Adonis Georgiadis and Potami MP Grigoris Psarianos were absent.

    A surprise vote against two articles came by SYRIZA MP Vasiliki Katrivanou who voted against the new privatization fund and the contingency mechanism.

    During a roll-call vote on the articles requested by Golden Dawn, opposition parties approved several of the articles: New Democracy voted "Yes" for articles 1-43 on the establishment of the Independent Public Revenues Authority, article 56 on amendments concerning gambling and articles 215-230 on the concession on regional airports and matters relating to contract implementation.

    PASOK voted "Yes" on articles 215 and 216 on regional airports. The Communist Party voted "Present" on article 44 concerning issues of income taxation, article 48 on taxation of organizations for collective investments and article 56 on gambling. Golden Dawn voted against all the articles.

    Potami voted "Yes" on articles 1, that concerns the establishment of the general secretariat for public revenues, article 56 on gambling, article 65 on the definition of a professional farmer, article 66 on changes to the taxation of alcoholic beverages, article 105 on the procedure to settle differences of the Competition Committee and articles 215-230 on regional airports. The party also voted "present" on article 153 on forest maps.

    The Centrists Union voted "present" on article 66 on taxation of alcoholic beverages and articles 215-230 on regional airports. It voted "No" on all other article.

    Independent MP Haris Theoharis voted articles 1, 5, 7 and 35 on the independent public revenues authority, "present" on article 66 on alcoholic beverages and 215-230 on regional airports.

    [02] SYRIZA MP who voted against two measures in omnibus bill will not be expelled-sources

    SYRIZA MP Vasiliki Katrivanou, who voted against two measures in the government's omnibus bill in parliament on Sunday will not be expelled from the party, SYRIZA sources said, but added that "the lawmaker will have to take some decisions", insinuating she should resign.

    The same sources said there will be developments on the issue very soon.

    Katrivanou voted in favour of the bill in principle but against the articles on the contingency mechanism and the new privatisation fund, causing frustration to the government and the party.
