Bill on prior actions for third program review to be tabled in Parliament next week

The omnibus bill containing the prior actions required to compete Greece’s third program review will be tabled in parliament next week and will likely be debated in a fast-track procedure, a parliamentary source said on Wednesday.

According to the source, the government aims to have the bill approved before the Eurogroup on January 22, which will discuss whether the program review has been successfully concluded and open the way for the disbursement of the loan installment.

It will also allow for discussions to start on the country’s exit from the program later in the year and the post-bailout era.
