Debate in Parliament on committee to probe possible health scandals

The debate on the two proposals submitted by SYRIZA-ANEL and New Democracy for investigation into the health sector  started in Parliament on Wednesday.

The ruling SYRIZA-ANEL coalition has submitted a proposal for a parliamentary investigating committee to examine the health sector from 1997 until 2014.
Main opposition New Democracy MPs, led by the party's leader Kyriakos Mitsotakis, tabled their own proposal for a parliamentary investigation of suspected health sector scandals, asking that the scope of the inquiry be extended to include all years after 1996, right up to the present day.

So far the government and opposition have locked horns, with ND leader Kyriakos Mitsotakis accusing the governmnet of contributing to the rise of pharmaceuticals after the Samaras government had managed continuouw price cuts during its tenurs in office.
