Greek Parliament votes for second set of reforms

The Greek Parliament is today expected to vote for the second set of reforms that the country needs in order to receive the bailout according to the EU agreement. If the MPs approve these financial and judicial reforms, Greece can continue with its negotiations to receive a further €86 billion bailout from its creditors.

Greek PM Alexis Tsipras will be holding a meeting with members of his Syriza party and telling the Greek people that the only hope for the country is to remain within the Euro Zone.

Despite this, Tsipras has a number of rebels within his own party, 32 out of 149, including his own ex-Finance Minister Yanis Varoufakis who a week ago already voted against these measures. This means that Tsipras is leading a Government with a majority of just three seats.
