Greece’s conservative opposition New Democracy party will not back the government in a vote of confidence the prime minister is expected to call after Aug. 20, a senior party lawmaker said on Friday.
“New Democracy giving the government a vote of confidence? There is no chance of that,” lawmaker Makis Voridis said after parliament passed Greece’s latest bailout bill.
A senior New Democracy official confirmed the party did not intend to vote in favour of Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras’s government if a confidence vote was called.
