    Tuesday, 06 July 2010 17:00

    Debate on social security draft-bill opened in the Parliament Plenum on Tuesday and will end on Thursday. A high pitched dispute is expected between the government and the opposition parties. Labour Minister Andreas Loberdos has tabled four last minute amendments. The ND party has raised issue of unconstitutionality while ND party leader Antonis Samaras said his party will vote against the draft-bill in principal but will vote in favour of particular articles- which are in the right direction as he said. GCP general secretary Aleca Papariga said the draft-bill was an insult and mockery against the Greek people and stressed that her party would vote against it. The president of SYRIZA Parliamentary Group, Alexis Tsipras called the government to recall the draft-bill-which he described as unconstitutional. The two largest labour union GSEE and ADEDY have responded with a nationwide strike on Thursday, July, 8.
