Parliament passes humanitarian crisis bill per article

The humanitarian crisis bill was passed per article by a majority in Parliament early on Thursday (19/03/2015).

The first four articles concerning the provision of free electricity, food allowance and housing to households living in extreme poverty were voted unanimously by the plenary.

However, the fifth article, which authorises the government to determine precisely, through a joint ministerial decision, the income and other parameters to identify beneficiaries, was not voted by Golden Dawn, To Potami and communist party KKE.
