SYRIZA Tables Censure Motion Against Coalition Govt

The main opposition Radical Left Coalition (SYRIZA) tabled a motion in Parliament for a vote of no confidence against the New Democracy and PASOK coalition government after riot police entered the building of former public broadcaster ERT to end an occupation by former employees, the Athens News Agency-Macedonian Press agency reported.
SYRIZA leader Alexis Tsipras called the operation a "major institutional misdeed," which he said "is inconceivable for us to accept", the news agency reported.
Tsirpas also criticized severely the government for its economic policies.
The three-day Parliamentary discussion on the censure motion will get underway on Friday at noon. According to the Greek Parliament Rules of Procedure all sides are given 48 hours to prepare.
