Tsipras said not to have decided on early Greek elections, left rebels turn up heat
By George Georgiopoulos ATHENS (Reuters) - Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras has yet to make up his mind on calling early elections, a government minister said on Wednesday, following a rift in the ruling party over the country's new bailout deal. The comment came as former energy minister Panagiotis Lafazanis, who leads hard left rebels in Tsipras' Syriza party, repeated his opposition to the bailout and signaled he might refuse to support Tsipras in any confidence vote. Ministers have spoken openly about the possibility of a parliamentary confidence vote leading to elections since Tsipras had to rely on opposition lawmakers to win approval on Friday for the 86 billion euro bailout deal.
