Greece debt crisis: PM Tsipras ‘focused on bailout deal’

Greek PM Alexis Tsipras is focused on completing a bailout deal agreed with the eurozone despite setbacks in a crucial vote to push through tough reforms, his spokesman has said.

Gabriel Sakellaridis was speaking after Mr Tsipras won the late-night vote convincingly, but with more than 30 of his own MPs voting against him.

The vote means the government lost its majority but is expected to survive.

Eurozone finance ministers are due to discuss the vote in a conference call.

They will also consider short-term emergency funding to keep Greece afloat until the new bailout is finalised. Greece is facing an immediate cash crisis, with banks there closed for more than two weeks.

The European Commission has proposed giving Greece a €7bn (£5bn) “bridging” loan from an EU-wide fund to help the country pay debt interest due in several days.
