The discussion in Parliament over the omnibus bill with prior actions, which are necessary in order to unlock further bailout funding, will continue on Friday, with a vote scheduled for later in the evening.
Earlier on Thursday the discussion was briefly suspended due to a provocative attack by Golden Dawn MP Yannis Lagos. The MP for the neo-Nazi party accused the MPs of the Communist Party of being “pawns of the system”. The KKE MPs complained, while the neo-Nazi party MPs yelled from their seats.
SYRIZA’s Spyridon Papadopoulos argued that the measures were harsh, but at the same he highlight that there were also radical proposals with a social outlook. On the other hand, New Democracy’s Nikos Panagiotopoulos spoke of a Sisyphean effort and that his part had warned the government of pursuing a wrong tactic.
