Anastasiades calls on House to approve bailout agreement (1)

Nicosia, Mar 17  (CNA) –  President of the Republic Nicos Anastasiades, has urged the political parties in the House of Representatives to vote in favour of the Eurogroup decision to impose a one-off levy on deposits on the island.

In a televised address to the people, President Anastasiades said he fully undertakes responsibility for his actions and the solution which “we have chosen is surely not the one we wanted to, but it is the least painful under the circumstances and because most of all it allows us to be able to handle the economy ourselves”.

Anastasiades said that he will fully respect the decision of the House, which should decide bearing in mind the best interests of the people and country.
