Greek Parliament Passes Bill on Migration

ATHENS – The bill on "improving legislation on migration" has been passed by Parliament, with the support of the ruling party MPs and votes against from opposition Movement for Change (KINAL), the Communist Party of Greece (KKE), Elliniki Lysi and MeRA25. Main opposition SYRIZA MPs had walked out in protest after the president agreed to allow the use of a postal vote during the roll-call vote that followed, stressing their opposition to the bill.

The vote was held late on Friday with 158 out of a total 214 deputies that were present voting in favour and 56 voting against.

Parliament also passed an amendment on distance learning, special-purpose leave and other items relating to teachers.
