Tsipras delays vote in Greek parliament on key reform measures

cep economist Kullas says troika must now watch very carefully whether Greece really implements the agreed prior actions

Tsipras shies away from parliamentary vote

The Greek government has excluded measures on heavier taxation for the farmers and eliminating early retirement options from the second omnibus bill to be voted in parliament on Wednesday. The office of Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras announced that the parliamentary vote will be on changes in the Civil Procedure Code and the integration of the EU's Bank Recovery and Resolution Directive. cep economist Matthias Kullas criticizes the delay of important reform measures. “The troika must now watch very carefully whether Greece really implements the prior actions agreed with the country’s creditors,” the expert said. “If Greece shies away from important reforms already now, then there should not be a third bailout program for the country.”
