Greek PM Facing No Confidence Vote
Via the BBC: Greek referendum: Papandreou losing MPs’ support
Greek PM George Papandreou appears to be heading for defeat in a confidence vote after growing opposition within his own party to a surprise referendum call on the EU bailout plan.
Mr Papandreou’s Pasok party holds a slim majority, 152 out of 300 seats.
The Greek cabinet is now meeting in emergency session.

According to the BBC, at least three members of Pasok have stated that they will vote against Papandreou if it comes to a vote.
The real issue now is if a no confidence vote (or a Panadreou resignation, which may be even more likely) will result in the cancellation of the plebiscite on the EU bailout plan.
