The Greek opposition leader is asking Greek PM George Papandreou to resign, just after the latter said he’d reached a consensus with the opposition.What’s more, two of Papandreou’s ruling PASOK MPs have said that they might not support Greece in a confidence vote, according to Dow Jones.

That vote is scheduled for 4 PM EST tomorrow.

Opposition leader Antonis Samaras told reporters that Papandreou was telling lies about his support for the Greek bailout package under the current government. Evidently, he told Papandreou to step down.

DJ is also reporting that he said the opposition is against austerity measures and wants a transition government. Other reports suggest otherwise.

Things don’t look good for G-Pap’s political career.
