Debate on draft omnibus bill begins in Parliament

The debate on the draft omnibus bill with the prior actions necessary for the conclusion of the third review of the Greek programme opened in parliament with the deputies’ speeches on Monday morning. However, the political interest is focused on the party leaders’ speeches, when the confrontation is expected to peak.

Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras is expected to speak in parliament after 14:30.

The discussion is due to conclude very late on Monday night and be followed by a roll call vote.
