Cyprus to re-submit privatisation bill to parliament - government spokesman

NICOSIA (Reuters) - Cyprus's government will re-submit privatisation legislation to parliament, a spokesman said on Friday, a day after lawmakers rejected the roadmap and put an international bailout programme at risk.

Government spokesman Christos Stylianides said legislation, amended to accommodate concerns over workers legacy rights, would be submitted to the House of Representatives on Friday. It was not immediately clear when parliament would reconvene to debate the bill.
