The plan drafted by the government regarding the public sector agencies that will be abolished will be tabled in parliament immediately, in the for of an amendment, finance minister and government vice president Evangelos Venizelos told parliament on Friday.
He said that the government's two vice presidents -- himself and Theodoros Pangalos -- jointly recommended at Thursday's Cabinet meeting that the lists with the agencies to be abolished should be introduced as an amendment attached to the bill on fiscal consolidation, discussion of which begins next week in the authoritative parliamentary committee.
The goal, he said, is for the abolitions to have been completed by August 5, noting that the abolitions are not only part of Greece's agreement with its partners but also a fundamental action towards rationalisation of the state.
