Greek PMs will vote on the new austerity measures on May 18, Parliament speaker Nikos Voutsis said on Monday.

Voutsis said he expects that all 153 deputies of the SYRIZA-Independent Greeks coalition will back the measures in Parliament.

If New Democracy chooses not to support the so-called offset measures on the other hand, he added, the decision will create problems for the conservative opposition party.
