In today’s episode, the House of Representatives rejected the referral of three bills by President Nicos Anastasiades in a session of the plenum on Tuesday.

Two of the bills aimed at scrapping double taxation on fuel and ending the charging of VAT on emission costs in electricity bills, while the third looked to suspend the foreclosures law for three month.
