New Democray renewed its call for early elections on Friday, saying that the government is weakening and that the only solution for the country are snap polls.

"Regardless of how much Messrs Tsipras and Kamenos try to hide it, Kleisthenis did not get a vote of confidence yesterday. The simple proportional representation for the regions was voted by 150 lawmakers and the change in the municipal elections date was voted in by 149," the party said in an announcement.

"Day by day, the government is faltering. It is unprecedented for parliament that major decisions are taken without at least 151 votes. The only exodus for the country are national elections," it added.
