Greek PM wins confidence vote after Macedonia name crisis

Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras won a confidence vote in parliament on Wednesday, averting the prospect of a snap election. Tsipras called the confidence motion after his coalition partner Panos Kammenos quit the government on January 13 in protest over the Macedonia name row. Parliament gave Tsipras 151 votes, meeting the threshold he required in the 300-member assembly.
