Radical Left Coalition (SYRIZA) Parliamentary Group president Alexis Tsipras, in a letter to Parliament president Filippos Petsalnikos, requested the holding of an off-the-agenda debate in Parliament at party leader level on developments in the European Union in light of the special summit on March 13.

Tsipras mentioned in his letter that under normal conditions, the holding of an analytical discussion at the plenum, for such important issues should constitute a priority for the government itself, as is the case accordingly in the rest of the European parliaments, before crucial decisions.
