Main opposition New Democracy (ND) on Thursday ousted MP from the Argolis district Elsa Papadimitriou, after she defied the party line and voted in favor of the government's Medium-Term fiscal programme 2012-2015 in parliament the previous day.
The decision was announced to the parliament president in a letter from ND leader Antonis Samaras.
Before the plenary session that ratified the Medium-Term Fiscal Framework 2012-2015, Papadimitriou had announced her intention to vote in favor of the programme, adding that she would retain her seat in parliament as an Independent.
