Greek Parliament Approves Joint Development Company for Church Property

parliamentAn amendment was passed in Parliament on Wednesday establishing the “Company for Developing the Real Estate Assets of the Church SA”, which will be owned equally by the Greek state and the Greek Orthodox Church.
During discussion in Parliament, main opposition Radical Left Coalition (SYRIZA) and the Communist Party of Greece (KKE) raised the issue of separating church and state, AMNA reported.
SYRIZA deputy Nikos Voutsis told Parliament his party would not oppose the amendment. The party, as reported by its rapporteur Dimitris Gakis, did not vote down the amendment but voted “present”, abstaining from a yes or no vote.
As Voutsis said, “We do not oppose this bill, this effort, but we retain a lot of reservations for it” which he said were based on the details contained in the proposal.
KKE voted against the amendment.
