News Agency Reuters reported yesterday that "Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras easily won a parliamentary confidence vote in the early hours of Wednesday after pledging never to allow Greece to return to the era of austerity and bailout programs."

"Tsipras, who controls 149 lawmakers from his leftist Syriza party, won the backing of 162 deputies in the 300-seat parliament with the support of his junior coalition partner, anti-bailout Independent Greeks Party."

JG: Obnoxious and obstructionist little parties like KKE, (The Greek Communist Party), voted with the right-wingers of New Democracy, who practically bankrupted the Balkan country. Greece will recover because the people are very strongly united.
