Parliament to vote on committee for World War II reparations claims

Parliament is due to vote within the next few days on a proposal made on Thursday by the House’s Council of Presidents for a biministerial committee to discuss Greece’s ongoing claims for World War II reparations from Germany.

Should it be approved, the committee will most likely consist of one member from each party in Parliament. Kathimerini also understands that it may be chaired by leftist SYRIZA MP Manolis Glezos, a WWII veteran and resistance fighter.
