Greece’s Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras won the backing of the Greek Parliament for his bailout proposals following a debate and vote on the 10-11 July 2015. Seventeen members of his ruling coalition opposed the plan.
News sources also reported that the three creditor institutions (ECB, IMF and EU) had also assessed the proposals positively on the 10 July 2015 as a basis for a €74bn bailout.
Sources also reported that France had played a key mediating role behind the scenes and helped the Greek authorities put forward a credible set of proposals.
The proposals would be discussed at an Eurogroup meeting on the 11 July 2015, and a specially convened European Council in Brussels on the 12 July 2015.
