FXstreet.com (Barcelona) - According to Cypriot media, the parliamentary vote on the EU bailout plan might be postponed until Wednesday. The decision whether to proceed with the session or not is to be made at 16 GMT at the parliamentary party leaders’ meeting.

Should the vote be postponed, Cyprus president Nicos Anastasiades would meet party leaders tomorrow morning to further discuss the bailout plan, which would then be put to vote in the afternoon.
