Bulgaria: Greece to Vote on Constitutional Revision This Week

Greece’s leftist government and the conservative opposition are set to clash again as lawmakers prepare to vote on the proposals for the revision of the country’ constitution, Kathimerini reported.

The vote is expected to take place late on Wednesday or Thursday morning.

Rules stipulate that a proposal needs to be approved by at least 151 MPs. If a proposal gets 151 votes but fewer than 180, then it will need to be backed by at least 180 deputies in the next parliament, which will be formed after elections later this year.

Accordingly, if a proposal gets 180 votes in the upcoming ballot, then it will only need to pass the 150 mark in the next parliament.
Things could become complicated for the government, which relies on 145 SYRIZA lawmakers and six non-SYRIZA MPs.
