Greek government passes property tax but loses one deputy
Greece's coalition government expelled one lawmaker who failed to back a controversial new property law on Saturday.
This reduces the fragile two-party alliance of conservative Prime Minister Antonis Samaras to three in the country's 300-seat parliament.
Lawmaker Byron Polydoras said the new property tax, which includes farming land, amounted to "confiscation" and proposed taxing offshore real estate companies instead. The new law is a key element in Greece's efforts to meet its 2014 fiscal targets.
