Tsipras faces Syriza revolt against prospective deal with creditors

A deal between Greece and its creditors over the current bailout programme is apparently closer to being agreed than ever before. However, attention is gradually now shifting to whether or not a potential agreement will be ratified by coalition government MPs in parliament.

Prime minister Alexis Tsipras has already begun talking to top party officials since last weekend. Reservations about a deal that will involve backing down from pre-election pledges have been publicly expressed by ministers and MPs such as Panagiotis Lafazanis, Zoe Konstantopoulou and Panos Skourletis, to name a few.

SYRIZA’s political secretariat is due to meet on Wednesday to discuss the prospective deal.
