Greek politicians discuss emergency legislation

GREEK MPs are debating emergency legislation to approve a massive bond swap that would shave €107bn off the country’s privately held debt.

Parliament will vote on the proposed deal, which has already been approved at committee level. The governing coalition controls a strong enough majority to pass the law.

The writedown to be imposed on banks, pension funds and other private holders of Greek government bonds was agreed this week by finance ministers from the 17-member eurozone.
