Greek Opposition Parties Reject Measures of Omnibus Bill on Prior Actions

Greek ParliamentThe minor opposition parties — except junior coalition partner ANEL — expressed their opposition to various measures included in the omnibus bill on the prior actions Greek parliament will vote on Friday, during its discussion at a joint parliamentary committee meeting.

The rapporteur of the Democratic Coalition, Giannis Koutsoukos, said the provisions of the bill constitute “tangible proof that refutes the entire pre-electoral rhetoric of SYRIZA and ANEL of the so-called tough negotiation which ended in unconditional surrender.”
The Communist Party’s rapporteur Nikos Karathanasopoulos described the bill as “barbaric” and added it has “clear class characteristics.”
Haris Theoharis of Potami accused the government of including in the bill provisions that do not constitute bailout obligations to pass them “without any debate” and added that the party will vote against it.
Independent Greeks’ (ANEL) rapporteur Dimitris Kammenos said the party is in favor of the bill but asked to allow the settlement of business debts against debts of the State and the assignment of debts from rents to the State.Union of Centrists’ rapporteur Marios Georgiadis said it reserves its final opinion on the bill and “maintains the hope that logic and realism will prevail.”
