What's next

• Wednesday or Thursday: The 19 eurozone finance ministers will assess Greek actions and recommend whether to proceed with the bailout program.

• By Thursday: A number of eurozone nations must ratify a rescue in their parliaments, and voting is to start at the end of the week if Greece clears all its hurdles. The German parliament is to convene on Friday. Others include Finland, the Netherlands, Austria and possibly Estonia, Slovenia and Portugal. Other countries may opt to hold voluntary votes.

• Friday: Eurozone finance ministers will wrap up details of temporary financing and whether to go ahead with ­negotiations.

• Monday: Greece must start working on a proposal that changes the way it hires public employees to avoid political favoritism. Also, Greece has a key payment of 3.5 billion euros due to the European Central Bank. It does not have the money, but eurozone leaders have opened the door to a bridge loan that could help Greece cover this and other costs.

• July 22: The Greek parliament must pass additional legislative measures, including a major overhaul of ­procedures in its costly and inefficient civil justice system.
