German Parliament approves Greece’s bailout extension

Germany’s Parliament overwhelmingly approved the four-month extension of Greece’s financial bailout on Friday, despite unease over the new government in Athens.

Lawmakers voted 542-32 to back the bailout extension. There were 13 abstentions.

Greece was granted the extension by its European creditors in exchange for a commitment to budget reforms. Germany is among the countries that needed to approve the deal in its national parliament.
