Leftist Tsipras calls censure motion, putting off multi-bill vote until Tuesday

Leftist SYRIZA leader Alexis Tsipras on Sunday called a censure motion against Finance Minister Yannis Stournaras over a new multi-bill of economic reforms demanded by the troika in return for continued rescue loans.

The surprise move by Tsipras, made during a debate in Parliament on Sunday about the multi-bill of structural reforms and other measures, means that a scheduled vote on the legislation on Sunday night has been put off until Tuesday night to allow the debate in Parliament to shift to the call for a censure motion against Stournaras.

It remained unclear what the implication of Tsipras's move would be for the disbursement of Greece's pending loan tranches. Eurozone finance ministers due to meet in Athens on Tuesday and Wednesday were expected to discuss the release of further aid on Greece but cannot approve disbursement until the multi-bill has been voted through Parliament.
