PM Samaras Confident Parliament Will Elect President by Third Round

We still have two rounds of voting ahead of us, Prime Minister Antonis Samaras said on Wednesday evening after the failure of the first round  to vote in Stavros Dimas as Greek president.
"I am sure we shall elect a Greek president," Samaras said to the press after the vote, which included 160 for, 135 "present" and five absent deputies.
The country "must not enter into adventures," he warned, and congratulated those independent deputies who voted for Dimas in the first round.
