government coalition meeting ends without agreement on anti-racism bill

The scheduled meeting this evening of the three parties who are supporting the government ends without an agreement.  Exiting the Maximos Mansion the leaders of Pasok and democratic left party told  journalists that they had unsuccessfully requested from the pri-minister Antonis Samaras the submission of the antiracism bill in the parliament. The government coalition is in open disagreement, probably because the conservative, most influential party of the government “New Democracy” is openly flirting with the far right and are afraid of loosing voters from antiracism bill. The smaller government’s partners,  Pasok and Democratic Left announced that they support the minister of Justice Antonis Roupakiotis and will immediately proceed the submission of antiracism bill in the parliament even without the support of pri minister Antonis Samaras.
