Lawmaker's exit shrinks Greek government majority

Lawmaker's exit shrinks Greek government majority (by William L. Watts)

FRANKFURT (MarketWatch) -- Greek Prime Minister George Papandreou's majority in the Greek parliament shrank to two seats Tuesday after a lawmaker from his PASOK party resigned from its parliamentary group and said she would continue as an independent, Greek newspaper Kathimerini reported Tuesday. The lawmaker, Milena Apostolaki, told Papandreou in a letter that she disagreed with his decision to seek a referendum on the debt deal struck between European leaders last week. Papandreou faces a confidence vote on Friday. Meanwhile, six members of PASOK's national council called for Papandreou's resignation, the newspaper reported.
