Meeting between Tsipras, Kammenos postponed to Friday

A meeting between leftist SYRIZA leader Alexis Tsipras and Independent Greeks chief Panos Kammenos seeking support for a censure motion against Greece’s finance minister has been postponed to Friday, according to local media reports.

The meeting was originally scheduled for Thursday.

The right-wing, anti-bailout party, which controls 18 seats in the House, has criticized Yannis Stournaras for his stance at the recent Eurogroup summit that led to the proposal for a haircut on Cypriot bank deposits.

Cypriot lawmakers rejected the plan on Tuesday.

Independent Greeks needs 50 deputies to sign the motion.
