Every offset measure will be tabled separately, say gov’t sources

Every offset measure will be tabled in several different articles (one measure as one article), according to a decision by the cabinet on Thursday, based on a proposal of Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras, government sources said.

The government wants to complete all the procedures by 16-17 May so that nobody will be able to blame the Greek government for delaying and to give the opportunity for a further extension of the discussion for the debt solution.

The medium-term measures on the debt must be specified at the Eurogroup meeting on May 22, which is what all parts wish for in order IMF’s report on the sustainability of the Greek debt to be positive, something that will pave the way for the country’s inclusion in the quantitative easing programme, said the same sources.

SYRIZA parliamentary group will convene on Friday at 11:00, chaired by Tsipras.
