Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras barely survived a no-confidence vote in parliament Wednesday, 151 to 148.

“I call upon you with hand on heart to give a vote of confidence today to the government which gave battle, which bled, but managed to haul the country out of memorandums and surveillance,” Tsipras asked the lawmakers before the vote.

He was apparently referring to the economic bailouts Greece needed over the past decade to avoid bankruptcy and economic ruin.

Tsipras himself called for the no-confidence vote after Defense Minister Panos Kammenos resigned and pulled his nationalist ANEL Party from the ruling coalition.

Kammenos quit to protest the U.N.-brokered deal with FYR Macedonia, ending a nearly 30-year-long dispute over who gets to use the name Macedonia.

If approved by the Greek parliament, the former Yugoslav republic would be officially called the Republic of North Macedonia.

Kammenos appealed to Tsipras Wednesday to put the name change question before voters in a referendum.

Many Greeks, especially nationalists, are upset over the deal. They say the name should exclusively belong to the ancient region of northern Greece, made famous by Alexander the Great.

Opponents say letting the country of FYR Macedonia use it implies territorial claims on the region.

The dispute has held up FYR Macedonia’s desires to join NATO and the European Union because of Greek objections.

Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras said Sunday he will ask for a vote of confidence in Parliament this week after the country’s defense minister, who leads the coalition government’s junior party, resigned over the Macedonia name deal.

Panos Kammenos announced his resignation and said his right-wing Independent Greeks party is quitting the government after meeting with Tsipras on Sunday morning.

Tsipras appeared confident when speaking to the press Sunday that he would be able to find the needed 151 votes and survive both the confidence vote and the Macedonia name change vote, since the group led by Kammenos had only seven seats.

Tsipras said he had a “frank discussion” with Kammenos, whom he thanked for his government partnership, and announced that Admiral Evangelos Apostolakis, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, will become the country’s new defense minister.

Greece and FYR Macedonia agreed last June to a deal that would change the name of Greece’s northern neighbor to North Macedonia. In exchange, Greece would lift its objections to the country joining NATO.

The deal ended a dispute that had been going on since the early 1990s but it is opposed by conservatives like Kammenos, who feel that Tsipras gave away too many concessions.

FYR Macedonia’s parliament ratified the deal on Friday. Now Tsipras needs only a majority in the 300-seat Greek parliament to ratify the accord.

Tsipras already has the backing of his 145-strong Syriza parliamentary…

Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras said Sunday he will ask for a vote of confidence in Parliament this week after the country’s defense minister, who leads the coalition government’s junior party, resigned over the Macedonia name deal.

Panos Kammenos announced his resignation and said his right-wing Independent Greeks party is quitting the government after meeting with Tsipras on Sunday morning.

Tsipras appeared confident when speaking to the press Sunday that he would be able to find the needed 151 votes and survive both the confidence vote and the Macedonia name change vote, since the group led by Kammenos had only seven seats.

Tsipras said he had a “frank discussion” with Kammenos, whom he thanked for his government partnership, and announced that Admiral Evangelos Apostolakis, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, will become the country’s new defense minister.

Greece and FYR Macedonia agreed last June to a deal that would change the name of Greece’s northern neighbor to North Macedonia. In exchange, Greece would lift its objections to the country joining NATO.

FYR Macedonia’s parliament ratified the deal on Friday. Now Tsipras needs only a majority in the 300-seat Greek parliament to ratify the accord.

Tsipras already has the backing of his 145-strong Syriza parliamentary group.

The prime minister also seems assured of the support of two, and possibly three, Independent Greeks, an independent conservative, at least two and up to four lawmakers from centrist party To Potami, an independent socialist and possibly one lawmaker from the small Centrist Union. That…
