Greece is ahead of a vital Parliamentary vote today to pass property tax which is needed to convince international inspectors that Greece is eligible for the next tranche, due on October 3, of last year's 110-billion-euro aid package.

The property tax is to be levied through electricity bills to generate proceeds of 1.1% of GDP which will help in cutting budget deficit to meet this and next year's deficit targets.

Papandreou is hoping to have 154 votes out of the 300-member Parliament, like what happened in June when he managed to pass the austerity measures.
