No official vehicles for 67 MPs

Around half of the newly elected MPs in Parliament have chosen not to have an official car, paid for out of public coffers.

Parliament Speaker Zoe Constantopoulou confirmed Friday that a total of 67 out of 135 new lawmakers will not be provided with an official vehicle.

Of the car-less deputies, 47 are from governing SYRIZA.

The MPs who were re-elected in the January 25 election will retain their cars.

The data were published after reports gave inaccurate figures, Constantopoulou said.
