Mera25 MPs will give up half of their salaries to three hospitals in Athens, Thessaloniki and Crete, for as long as the lockdown continues, the anti-austerity party has announced.

Mera25 has nine deputies in the 300-seat Parliament.

The party, led by former finance minister Yanis Varoufakis, has already pledged to redirect funds from a planned conference to actions aimed at supporting social groups worst-hit by the coronavirus outbreak.
