Sworn in for new term, Greek MPs face tough few weeks

Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

Prime Min­is­ter Alexis Tsipras (left) at­tends a swearingin cer­e­mony for Par­lia­ment’s newly elected MPs on Satur­day. The law­mak­ers have their work cut out for them in the com­ing weeks, when Greece must leg­is­late a moun­tain of re­forms in or­der to qual­ify for the first in­stal­lent of its third bailout. With a ma­jor­ity of 155 in the 300-seat House, the coali­tion is likely to pass most bills with­out a prob­lem, but po­lit­i­cally con­tentious mea­sures such an over­haul of the pen­sion sys­tem might test MPs’ loy­al­ties.
