BRUSSELS, Feb 3 (Reuters) – Conservatives in the European
Parliament want it to vote next week to condemn a right-wing
party in Greece’s new leftist-led coalition government,
comparing it to an EU rebuke to Austria 15 years ago.
Manfred Weber, leader of the European People’s Party (EPP),
the biggest bloc in the legislature, said on Tuesday he would
press centre-left leaders to back a resolution similar to that
passed in 2000 when Joerg Haider’s far-right Austrian People’s
Party was brought into a conservative-led coalition in Vienna.
