  • [01] Gov't given vote of confidence

    AMNA / Greece's new transitional unity government under Lucas Papademos obtained an overwhelming vote of confidence in 300-MP Parliament on Wednesday evening.

    Voting in favour were 255 deputies out of 293 present, while 38 voted against.

    The roll call vote came after a three-day debate in the wake of new Premier Papademos' policy statement.

    Papademos presented his policy statements on Monday afternoon.

    The transitional government is backed by the majority PASOK party, main opposition New Democracy (ND) party and the small right-of-centre Popular Orthodox Rally (LAOS) party. AMNA

    Most of the former PASOK government ministers and deputy ministers have remained at their posts, including Finance Minister Evangelos Venizelos, while ND is participating with six members and LA.O.S with four. AMNA

    AMNA-- Three-day events commemorating the 38th anniversary of the November 17, 1973 Polytechnic students' uprising that led to the collapse of the 7-year military dictatorship in Greece culminate on Thursday, as officials and the public continue laying wreaths and placing flowers at the Polytechnic monument.

    The gates of the Polytechnic, which opened to the public on Tuesday at the commencement of the memorial events, will close shortly after noon on Thursday, as people gather for the annual march through the streets of Athens that will wind up in front of the US Embassy.

    Approximately 7,000 police officers will be patrolling the city of Athens to prevent incidents
