Alexis Tsipras at risk from fallout over Macedonia name deal

Even if he loses the confidence vote, the timing of any new election is unclear given that Tsipras has pledged that Greece won't return to the polls until the government completes a series of measures to stabilize the economy, including constitutional reform, new legislation to protect homeowners and an increase in the minimum wage.

ANEL is the junior party in Greece's ruling coalition and strongly opposes the name change, a rift that threatens to destabilise the government of Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras, who helped broker the deal.

Earlier, Greece's right-wing defence minister resigned in protest at a deal ending a long running dispute with Macedonia over its name, saying he was taking his other six ministers in cabinet with him.

Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras has said he will call a confidence vote after his governing coalition split over the Macedonia name change.

Its neighbour has agreed to change its name to the Republic of North Macedonia, but Kammenos was still not happy.

Mr Tsipras believes the agreement can be ratified with the 145 lawmakers of his leftist Syriza party plus the votes of the small pro-EU To Potami party as well as some ANEL lawmakers who disagree with Mr Kammenos' position.

The main opposition New Democracy party, widely favoured to win the next elections whenever they are held this year, has said it will block the deal which it faults over its treatment of the "Macedonian" nationality question.

Greece has blocked its neighbour's accession to North Atlantic Treaty Organisation and the European Union ever since Macedonia broke away from the former Yugoslavia in 1991.

The row over the name started in September 1991, after the territory became independent from former Yugoslavia and called itself Republic of Macedonia.

Greek nationalists argue that the name "Macedonia" can only refer to the Greek province of the same name.

With the breakup of the Roman Empire into East and West, this region was overrun by the Slavic invasions.

Kommersant estimates that the adoption of constitutional changes can have another effect, important not only for that Balkan state, adding that "in the opinion of regional experts, this can influence the granting of autocephaly to the Macedonian Orthodox Church". This remained the case for centuries and so this concept - of what Macedonia is - has stuck.

As if it weren't complicated enough, there's another meaning of the word Macedonia. His two-seat majority is a reminder that post-bailout Greece remains brittle at a time when the euro area's biggest countries are also struggling to provide leadership. In Macedonian, the name is Severna Makedonija.

Macedonia: What's in a name? It began almost three decades ago, with Macedonia's declaration of independence, but has roots dating back centuries.

Athens has objected to its neighbor being called Macedonia because it has a northern province of the same name, the seat of Alexander the Great's ancient kingdom.
