Communist Party of Greece (KKE) Parliamentary representative Nikos Karathanasopoulos, speaking during the debate on the Medium-term Programme, called for an enlarged majority of 180 deputies for the ratification of the Programme.
He tabled a rollcall vote proposal and immediately afterwards announced his party's withdrawal from the discussion and its return during the rollcall vote, while terming the bill a "guilotine."
Popular Orthodox Rally (LAOS) party Parliamentary representative Pavlos Markakis called for a rollcall vote and an enlarged majority for the Programme's ratification, while accusing the government of "deliberately raising extortionate pseudodilemmas".
He also reiterated his party's position on the need for a national cooperation government.
Radical Left Coalition (SYRIZA) Parliamentary representative Dimitris Papadimoulis also called on the government to proceed with its ratification with an enlarged majority and announced that it will submit rollcall votes at all the stages of the process, while stressing that "you are trying with extortions, a strategy of fear, with express procedures and with arguments which if were not dangerous would be ludicrous, to load on the Greek people this barbaric class bill."
