Athens: A deputy labor minister has resigned from Greece`s new coalition government, saying it should have pressed harder to renegotiate the terms of the country`s bailout agreements.

Nikos Nikolopoulos announced his resignation on Monday, hours after the new conservative-led government won a confidence vote in Parliament.

Nikolopoulos, in a letter, argued that the government should have taken a tougher line with international debt inspectors in Athens last week to "correct serious distortions in the labor, pension and benefit systems."
