Parliament Q&A session canceled after ministers fail to turn up

A question time session in the Greek Parliament in Athens was suspended on Monday when none of the ministers scheduled to respond to eight questions put to them by deputies appeared in the House.

The questions were addressed to the ministers of agricultural development, infrastructure, finance and education.

The session’s suspension came despite the fact that Prime Minister Antonis Samaras had recently expressed dissatisfaction with regard to certain cabinet ministers who appeared to be avoiding parliamentary scrutiny.
