HOLLAND: ‘ Dutch lawmakers voted 81-52 to support Greek bailout ‘

#AceNewsReport – HOLLAND:Aug.19: The majority of Dutch lawmakers voted 81-52 in support of a third Greek bailout on Wednesday. Prime Minister Mark Rutte previously stated that a parliamentary vote was unnecessary, as it is the cabinet – not parliament – which makes policy.

However, he added it would have been politically difficult for him to sign off on the loans if the majority of lawmakers had rejected the plan. Rutte also survived a no-confidence vote on Wednesday, called by right-wing lawmaker Geert Wilders, who opposes the bailout.

Earlier in the day, Germany’s parliament overwhelmingly voted in favor of the €86-billion (US$95 billion) bailout.
