No further damage for Tsipras in second vote as SYRIZA stand-off continues
Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras emerged unscathed from the latest vote on prior actions demanded by Greece’s lenders before talks on a third bailout can begin.
The vote took place after 4 a.m. on Thursday following some six hours of debate, with 230 MPs supporting the measures, 63 opposing them, five abstaining and two not voting. This gave Tsipras one more “Yes” vote than last week.
