Greece passes 2013 austerity budget
Schaeuble said the so-called troika of debt inspectors likely won't deliver their report on Greece's reform program by today. The creditors also want to see what the debt inspectors have to say about Greece's debt sustainability.
But speaking minutes before the vote, Samaras pledged the bailout funds would be disbursed "on time."
Finance Minister Yannis Stournaras also stressed the precariousness of Greece's cash reserves, with the treasury bills due on Friday.
"Without the help of the European Central Bank, the refunding of these treasury bills from the banking system will lead the private sector to complete suffocation," Stournaras said.
