Parliamentary debate on revision of constitution extended to Thursday

The Hellenic Parliament will continue debating constitutional revision until Thursday rather than conclude discussions on Wednesday evening as originally scheduled, it was announced on Tuesday.

President of the Hellenic Parliament Nikos Voutsis said that the decision was taken so that all MPs may express themselves on the matter if they wish to; it came following requests from parliament group representatives stressing the need for consensus and urging for more time to be given to this highly significant parliamentary procedure.
