Greece debt crisis: MPs to vote on new bailout plan

Greek MPs are to vote later on whether to back PM Alexis Tsipras’s tough new proposals to secure a third bailout.

The proposals are aimed at staving off financial collapse and preventing a possible exit from the eurozone.

Eurozone finance ministers will examine the new plans, which include pension cuts and tax rises, ahead of a full EU summit on Sunday.

Mr Tsipras’s new plan contains many elements rejected in a referendum last Sunday.

He is likely to face opposition from the left of his own Syriza party.

However, a parliamentary spokesman for Syriza, Nikos Filis, said he was confident MPs would give the government the mandate to negotiate the new bailout package.

The coalition government has 162 seats in the 300-strong parliament and also has the backing of many opposition MPs.
