Prespes Agreement ratified with 153 votes
As expected, the Greek government of SYRIZA managed to ratify the Prespes Agreement in parliament on Friday amid widespread protests and despite staunch opposition.
Despite having 145 seats in a 300-seat House, after the departure from the coalition government of the Independent Greeks (ANEL) over the deal with FYROM, SYRIZA gained a total of 153 votes for the bill with 146 voting against it.
The ratification effectively hands over the historically Greek term “Macedonia” to the northern neighbours of Greece.
