An omnibus bill on prior actions was approved by parliament on Thursday evening with 153 votes in favour and 137 votes against the legislation.

In total, 290 MPs participated in the roll call vote, with deputies of the parties in the coalition government, SYRIZA and ANEL, voting ‘yes’.  All the opposition MPs voted against the bill in principle, while New Democracy, Golden Dawn and the Centrists’ Union also voted against all the articles.
