Apostolaki resigns as PASOK MP, majority down to two

PASOK MP Milena Apostolaki has resigned from the ruling partyís parliamentary group, reducing Prime Minister George Papandreouís majority in Parliament to just two seats.

In her letter to Papandreou, Apostolaki said that she disagreed with Papandreouís decision to propose a referendum on whether Greece should accept the debt and loan agreement it agreed with its eurozone partners and banks last week.

Apostolaki said that she would continue as an independent. The prime minister has called a vote of confidence in Parliament on Friday.

PASOK deputy Vasso Papandreou warned that ębankruptcy is imminentĽ and called on President Karolos Papoulias to form a national unity government that would serve for a fixed period of time before elections are held.

Six members of PASOKís national council have called for Papandreouís resignation.
