Greece's coalition government expelled seven members of their respective parties for failing to vote for the latest, deeply unpopular, austerity reform package tonight.
Greek Prime Minister Antonis Samaras expelled one lawmaker from his New Democracy party, while Evangelos Venizelos expelled six from his Socialist party PASOK.
The expulsions reduce the fragile, three party coalition to 169 out of the assembly's 300 seats.
