In the wake of the third meeting convened in an attempt to break the political deadlock prompted by the sudden closure of public broadcaster ERT, the leaders of the three-party coalition failed to reach agreement, reports I Kathimerini.

The leader of the Democratic Left (DIMAR), Fotis Kouvelis, has declared that he may withdraw from the government, while the MPs from his party are set to meet on June 21, to discuss their continued support for the administration led by Antonis Samaras (New Democracy).

If DIMAR quits the coalition, Samaras will be left with a very slim majority. New Democracy and the socialists of PASOK combined total 153 of the 300 seats in parliament — a narrow margin for the adoption of reforms demanded by Greece’s international creditors, notes the Athens daily.
