ATHENS, June 15 (Reuters) - Greek Prime Minister George Papandreou will form a new government on Thursday and seek a vote of confidence from his PASOK parliamentary group, he said in a televised address on Wednesday.

"I will continue on the same course. This is the road of duty, together with PASOK's parliamentary group, its members, and the Greek people," Papandreou said on state television.

"Tomorrow I will form a new government, and then I will ask for a vote of confidence." (Reporting by Harry Papachristou; Writing by Ingrid Melander)

This is really all the EU’s fault. They set the standards for membership, but forgot about differences in economical, cultural and moral standards among countries.
Spaniards, French, Portugese, Italians and Irish are not Germans, Dutch or Scandinavians. They have absolutely no qualms about lying, cheating and stealing.
