Greek Tourism Minister and Independent Greeks (ANEL) MP Elena Kountoura said on Monday that she "unequivocally" supports the government ahead of a confidence vote this week, breaking with party leader Panos Kammenos who quit the coalition on Sunday.

"I unequivocally support the government to complete it work," Kountoura said in a statement carried by the Athens-Maceddonia News Agency.

"I am staying consciously clear of petty political games and, as I've always done throughout my political career, I will continue to proceed seriously, responsibly and with the national interest at heart," she said. 

Kountoura added that her right to vote according to her conscience was non-negotiable.
