The debt troubles of Greece have cast a shadow of panic on another upcoming vote. At stake is the standing of the current Prime Minister's government.

From the article:
Quote
In Athens, thousands of protesters have gathered in Syntagma Square ahead of the vote, and security has been tightened around the nearby parliament building.

Eurozone leaders fear that failure to solve the Greek debt crisis could risk it spreading to other vulnerable economies, particularly Italy.
