Greek government seen calling confidence vote

Print | Front Page | Email this story

ATHENS, Greece (AP) — A Greek minister indicates it is highly likely Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras will call for a vote of confidence in his government after a bailout deal with foreign creditors sparked a rebellion within his governing Syriza party.

Energy and Environment Minister Panos Skourletis told private Skai television Monday that he feels the move is "self-evident" following last week's parliamentary vote on the bailout, which passed thanks to opposition parties' support.

Dozens of Syriza lawmakers dissented and voted against the government. Skourletis said he believes early elections are also necessary.

The government has said it will take any decisions on handling the political situation as of Aug. 20, when Greece faces a large debt repayment to the European Central Bank.
