Of course, before this happens, the Greek Parliament will have to vote and approve the Protocol. According to Parliament Speaker, the vote would be held Friday, February 8, the latest. – or at least two-three days earlier, according to determined Stoltenberg.
the Greek government managed to secure 153 votes for the Prespes Agreement, although SYRIZA has just 145 seats in the Parliament.
