Friedrich Says ‘No Risk’ German Parliament Won’t Back Greek Aid

May 4 (Bloomberg) -- The German parliament is sure to approve aid for Greece when it votes on May 7, said Hans-Peter Friedrich, deputy leader in parliament of Chancellor Angela Merkel’s CDU/CSU bloc.

“The aid will be passed,” Friedrich said in an interview after a meeting of coalition leaders in Berlin today. “You can be sure of that.”

Friedrich, who is also the floor leader of Merkel’s CSU Bavarian allies, said “there’s no risk” the bill setting out loans for Greece of as much as 22.4 billion euros over three years won’t pass. “The government believes that this is necessary.”
