Special Parliamentary Session on Friday Over Proposed Referenda

Greek Parliament_PPCThe Greek Parliament’s Conference of Presidents decided on Thursday to hold a special session of the first Summer Recess section of the Parliament at 10 a.m. on Friday and determine whether or not a plenary Parliament session should be convened to discuss the opposition parties’ individually proposed referenda on the “small PPC” issue, based on the Constitution’s provisions.
This session was proposed by the government majority and vehemently opposed by the opposition parties.
The main opposition Radical Left Coalition SYRIZA party, the Independent Greeks (ANEL) and the Communist Party of Greece (KKE) will not participate in Friday’s Parliament session. They accused the government of “unparliamentary” approaches and practices.
“The government block fended off the fact that there were over 120 [MPs‘] signatures, as well as similarity in the opposition’s [“small PPC” referenda] proposals, something contrary to common sense as far as I am concerned”, commented the secretary of DIMAR Nikos Anagnostakis, following the conclusion of the Conference of Presidents.
According to the Parliament’s rules, a referendum must be voted on by the plenary, or full session of Parliament. The “small PPC” is a subsidiary of the Public Power Corporation (PPC) whose splitting and subsequent privatization was approved through a bill passed in Parliament by the government majority.
