Greek Parliament Rejects Inquiry for 3 Ministers

The Greek parliament rejected on Thursday night a proposal by New Democracy to set up a special parliamentary committee to investigate a possible breach of trust by three SYRIZA ministers in connection with the ongoing investigation into the Novartis case.

The proposal concerned Shipping Minister Panagiotis Kouroumblis (who previously served as health minister) and current Health Minister Andreas Xanthos and Alternate Minister Pavlos Polakis, and their decisions on the pricing of pharmaceutical products.

Apart from ND, the proposal was supported by Golden Dawn, while the votes of the Democratic Coalition and Potami were deemed invalid. The Communist Party and the Centrists Union did not participate in the vote.
