Greek Parliament to Vote on Supplementary Budget on Thursday

ATHENS – The Hellenic Parliament is to vote on a supplementary budget of 2.6 billion euros next Thursday, April 14, which was tabled as an amendment to a finance ministry bill on Friday. The draft bill, which will incorporate a number of European directives into national law, is scheduled to begin its second reading in a parliamentary committee on Monday.

The amendment increases the funds of the regular budget by 2.0 billion euros and the joint financing sections of the Public Investments Budget by 600 million euros. This spending, according to the General Accounting Office report, is linked to “extremely urgent and emergency needs that arose due to the energy crisis.”

It also includes statutes that allow vehicle owners to pay circulation taxes only for the months that the vehicle is in circulation, without any penalty, and relieves farmers and fishermen in the normal VAT regime of the entrepreneurial fee.
