Parliament Passes Bill on Prior Actions Demanded by Greece's Lenders

The omnibus bill that includes the prior actions demanded by Greece's lenders passed in Parliament in the early hours of Thursday morning by an overwhelming majority of 229 over a total of 299 deputies.
The bill, named "Emergency regulations for the negotiation and conclusion of agreement with the European Stability Mechanism (ESM)," passed on the strength of the votes from the ruling coalition of SYRIZA and Independent Greeks (ANEL), main opposition New Democracy, To Potami and PASOK.
Voting against it were 64 deputies: 32 of them belonged to the senior ruling coalition party SYRIZA and the rest from the extreme-right Golden Dawn and the Communist Party of Greece (KKE). Another 6 deputies, all from SYRIZA, voted "present".
