Plenary passes government’s taxation bill by wide party consensus

The government’s taxation bill was passed by a Tuesday evening majority party plenary vote.

The legislation was approved having secured the consensus of four of the six parties in the House, set to reduce the special property tax (ENFIA) and also upgrade-extend the 120-instalments debt repayment plan.

It was voted in by New Democracy, main opposition party SYRIZA, Movement For Change-KINAL and the Greek Solution party.

The Greek Communist Party-KKE voted ‘present’, while MePA25 voted against the bill, in principle, and in favor of the bill on the 120-instalments clause.
