SYRIZA Left Platform Likely to Reject Bailout Deal in Greek Parliament

Panagiotis Lafazanis
Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras is likely to face internal strife over his 86-billion-euro agreement with international creditors on Monday.
The deal, which was struck after 17 hours of deliberations and will include more measures and reforms than the ones Greece submitted last week, will have to be ratified by the Greek government by Wednesday at the latest.
The SYRIZA Left Platform, a sub group within the party, is likely to vote against the deal, vote “present” or even abstain from the whole process, according to Greek media.
Productive Reconstruction, Environment and Energy Minister Panagiotis Lafazanis, leader of the Left Platform, will not resign from his post even though he will reportedly vote against the Prime Minister’s deal. Lafazanis had also rejected the Greek proposals sent to international creditors.
The SYRIZA Parliamentary Group will meet tomorrow morning to discuss the deal.
