As Greek bailout deal passes, Tsipras faces rebellion

The Greek parliament passed Greece’s new 86 billion euro bailout deal on Friday, but the vote indicated leftist Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras may no longer have enough support to maintain a ruling coalition. 118 of the MPs in Tsipras’s coalition supported the bailout deal, but 120 MPs are needed to maintain a coalition. An official close to Tsipras told the New York Times that the prime minister would call for a vote of confidence in his government after Aug. 20, when Greece needs to repay a 3.2 billion euro loan to the European Central Bank.
