`Greek PM is history`

Greek Prime Minister George Papandreou has already summoned a cabinet meeting at noon.



Athens: A Greek governing Socialist lawmaker says Prime Minister George Papandreou is "history”, as lawmakers revolt against a planned referendum on the country`s hard-won international bailout package.

Dimitris Lintzeris said in a statement on Thursday that Papandreou must convene an emergency meeting of party lawmakers.

Papandreou` has already summoned a cabinet meeting at noon, after Finance Minister Evangelos Venizelos broke ranks with him on the referendum proposal.

Earlier on Thursday, Socialist lawmaker Eva Kaili also said she would not support the government in Friday`s confidence vote, and urged Papandreou to reverse his decision to call a referendum.

Without Kaili`s support, the governing Socialists hold a one-seat majority in the 300-member Parliament.
