Greece's Parliament Approves Reform Bill

Greece's Parliament passed a reform bill which incorporates into the country's legislation hundreds of reform measures which the government has agreed with the European Union and the International Monetary Fund, Reuters reported.
The adoption of the bill allows the government to obtain loans to repay 9.3 billion euro of debt maturing in May.
The law caused tension in the ruling coalition for hurting vested interests in the dairy, publishing and pharmacy sectors and led to the resignation of the country's conservative deputy agriculture minister on Saturday, Reuters said.
A total of 152 lawmakers voted in favour of the bill.
