Greece's Tsipras Secures Parliamentary Majority in Future Votes

(Bloomberg) -- Four independent Greek lawmakers, and two from the Independent Greeks party, informed the Speaker in a letter that they will support Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras’s government in future parliamentary votes without joining his Syriza party’s parliamentary group, a government official said, requesting anonymity as the information hasn’t officially been made public yet.

The move increases Tsipras’s support in parliament to 151 lawmakers in the 300-seat chamber from 145 previously.
