Greece’s Proposal Will Be Accepted by Creditors, Says Parliament President



voutsisGreece’s Parliament President Nikos Voutsis expressed his optimism in Greek radio on Thursday that the country’s proposal on how to complete the negotiations with creditors will be accepted and the program review will conclude.

“It [the negotiations] will have a good conclusion … I’m optimistic that the review will be concluded with the acceptance of the Greek proposal,” he was quoted as saying.

Commenting on the contingent measures demanded by the institutions to complete the review, he said: “It’s not that we cannot [pass the measures]; we don’t want to pass them.”

Voutsis also said that any government that would pass such measures would risk losing investments, because it would be similar to admitting in advance that economic targets will not be met.
