The new measures agreed with Greece’s creditors in order to complete the second bailout program review will be legislated on May 18, House Speaker Nikos Voutsis told reporters on Monday. Voutsis said that the measures and countermeasures will be tabled for debate on May 15 and the voting process by the plenary will be completed in two sessions on May 17 and 18.

The parliament president told reporters that he is certain that all SYRIZA and ANEL MPs will vote for the measures and countermeasures. As for the countermeasures, he said that opposition MPs will vote for some of them. He also said that, “Main opposition New Democracy will have a very big problem if they don’t vote for some countermeasures, especially those that have to do with taxes.”

“When MP’s are called to vote they will have a clear picture of the measures and the debt,” Voutsis said. “Four days later the Eurogroup will be called upon to decide,” he added.
