Cyprus lawmakers to vote on deposit levy on Tuesday -euro zone official

Cyprus' parliament has postponed until Tuesday a vote on introducing a one-off levy on bank deposits that aims to raise 5.8 billion euros ($7.6 billion) for the country's bailout, but which could hit smaller savers, a euro zone official said on Monday.

"The vote will take place on Tuesday to allow time for more negotiations," the official told Reuters.

The vote had originally been planned for Monday.
