A delegation of European officials is expected in Parliament in Athens on Wednesday, in order to inaugurate the political monitoring of the bailouts. This initiative came as a response to the request filed to the European Council by Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras in August 2015.

As such, the Chair of the European Parliament’s Economic and Monetary Affairs Committee Roberto Gualtieri [pictured] will participate in a joint session of the Special Standing Committee of European Affairs, the Standing Committee of Financial Affairs and the Standing Committee of Social Affairs.

The European Commission’s mission chief to Greece Declan Costello is expected to appear before the members of the Greek and European Parliaments in Athens on Wednesday. The European delegation is scheduled to be received by PM Tsipras at 5pm.
