Greek parliament votes for Tsipras government

  • The Greek parliament passed a vote of confidence in favor of the second government of Alexis Tsipras after a three-day debate on a program that focused on completing the bailout, debt-restructuring and return to growth and social cohesion. Out of a total 300 members, the vote, held Wednesday midnight, was supported by 155 legislators of Syriza and Independent Greek parties (forming the two-party coalition government) while the rest voted against it. Tsipras had opened the debate three days ago while presenting his government's objectives for the next four years and closed it on Wednesday as the last speaker following speeches by seven leaders from other parties.
