Thursday, 02 October 2014
The government will seek a vote of confidence from Parliament next Monday - when plenary sessions resume for the winter - in accordance with article 84 of the Constitution, government spokeswoman Sofia Voultepsi announced. She said the decision was taken during a meeting earlier on Wednesday between Prime Minister Antonis Samaras and Government Vice-President and Foreign Minister Evangelos Venizelos.
The two party leaders in Greece's coalition government also decided that the process for the election of the new president of the Republic will go ahead as outlined in the Constitution, one month before the current president's term expires in February 2015, she said.
