Greek Prime Minister George Papandreou faces a confidence vote today, and there’s a lot of confusion over the outcome and the aftermath. One set of reports says that he will lose the confidence vote, and that he’s being urged to resign prior to it. Another set says that there’s a deal in place for Papandreou to resign after the confidence vote passes, and that a unity government will be established before snap elections within a month. This is what the opposition New Democracy party has been seeking.
