Tsipras suffers serious knocks in prior actions vote but emerges on his feet
Greek Parliament approved early on Thursday the first set of prior actions demanded by the country’s lenders but almost 40 SYRIZA MPs failed to support the measures, leaving Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras teetering but probably with enough backing to survive for the time being.
