Confusion about the future of the Greek government continued on Friday morning as members of the Democratic Left quit the government in the wake of the closure of the state broadcaster.
In Athens people on the streets are equally confused about the situation.
Athens resident Manolis, said: “I am conflicted. On the one hand, I don’t want adventures, but on the other hand the developments are not good. The light at the end of the tunnel could be the train that is about to crash into us.”
Athens resident Vassiliki Panousi, said: “Of course I am concerned. I really don’t know what would be best right now, whether to go to elections or not, which is not the best solution. The best thing would be for them to cooperate and achieve something.”
A meeting last night failed to agree on the future of the Greek state television channel which was abruptly closed down last week putting 2,700 jobs at risk.
There has been wide-ranging support for the sacked journalists and protests against the closure of the broadcaster including an open-air concert in front of the now-dark television centre.
