Parliament moves ahead with debate on reform bill

By The Associated Press

— The Greek parliament speaker has ruled that the main opposition party's motion of no-confidence in Finance Minister Yannis Stournaras is inadmissible, ensuring that debate on a bill introducing market reforms agreed with the country's lenders can continue.

Under parliamentary rules, debate on the motion would have taken precedence over any other item on the agenda.

The opposition Radical Left Coalition, known by its Greek acronym SYRIZA, opposes the reforms contained in the bill. It also accuses the government of trying to ram through, using an emergency debate procedure, a bill running into hundreds of pages without proper debate and adding clauses that would favor banks and certain businessmen.

Debate on the bill will end at midnight Sunday and a vote will follow.
