Parliament Adopts Controversial Amendment on Drug Prices

Greece’s parliament adopted a health ministry amendment amid controversy over an article on price reductions in pharmaceuticals, the Athens News agency-Macedonian Press agency reported.
The amendment was passed in a roll-call vote with 164 votes in support, 72 against, and 10 declaring "present" out of a total of 246 deputies, the news agency reported.
Roll-call voting had been requested by PASOK deputies who support the amendment, while a request by main opposition SYRIZA deputy Panagiotis Kouroumblis for separate voting on each of the amendment's five articles was rejected.
