Greek Prime Minister calls on parliament to reaffirm his mandate

ATHENS (Reuters) - Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras on Tuesday called on lawmakers to reaffirm his mandate in a confidence vote he is seen winning on Wednesday.

Tsipras called the vote after the resignation of Defence Minister Panos Kammenos and his Independent Greeks party, the junior partner in the ruling coalition, over an accord to end a long dispute between Greece and Macedonia.
