greeceGreek parliament approved a second round of reforms demanded by the country’s creditors, clearing the way for a third European Union bailout on Wednesday.

Prime Minister Alex Tsipras again faced dissent from his own ruling party, but the draft legislation passed overwhelmingly 230 to 63 votes in favor of the reforms.

Passing the reforms were the final hurdle before Greece can begin negotiations with creditors on its third bailout for around $93 billion. Bailout talks are expected to begin in Athens on Friday. Read more at BBC News.
