    FILE - This Wednesday, Nov. 2, 2011 file photo shows Greece's Conservative opposition leader Antonis Samaras addressing conservative members of parliament in Athens. Greece's prime minister struggled Saturday Nov. 5, 2011 to form a temporary coalition government, faced with opposition calls for immediate elections that have extended a political deadlock in the debt-shackled country. George Papandreou has agreed to step aside if necessary to help his Socialist party hammer out a four-month coalition he says is vital to securing a new debt deal worth an additional euro130 billion ($179 billion). But his offer was snubbed hours later by opposition leader Antonis Samaras. "We have not asked for any place in his government. All we want is for Mr. Papandreou to resign, because he has become dangerous for the country," Samaras said in a televised address. "We insisted on immediate elections."

A Greek opposition leader has called on the prime minister to resign and led his party in a dramatic walkout during a parliamentary debate about the viability of the government. Antonis Samaras' statements Thursday came amid an intense political crisis in Greece, after Prime Minister George Papandreou shocked the country and European leaders earlier this week by saying he wanted to put a hard-fought new European debt deal to a popular vote.

    FILE - This Thursday June 23, 2011 file photo shows right-wing politician Geert Wilders giving a brief statement after a Dutch court acquitted him of hate speech and discrimination in Amsterdam. This week's debt deal for Europe doubles down on the concept of European integration, and could provide further ammunition for the nationalist movements that have been gaining in popularity partly as a reaction to the idea of a single Europe. In order to back the investment in the euro, leaders in the eurozone have advocated a deepening integration of economic policies, transferring power from the national governments to the European level. But "euroskeptics" have made advances in arguing that Europe's elites are turning the bloc into a federal superstate against the wishes of their citizens. This week's developments threaten to boost their arguments. "This is a big step, only it's in the wrong direction," Dutch Freedom Party leader Geert Wilders said. (AP Photo/Evert Elzinga, File)

    FILE - In this Oct. 10, 2011 file photo the head of the right-wing Freedom Party, FPOE, Heinz-Christian Strache, front, speaks during a parliament session in Vienna, Austria as Austrian Chancellor Werner Faymann, rear, listens. This week's debt deal for Europe doubles down on the concept of European integration, and could provide further ammunition for the nationalist movements that have been gaining in popularity partly as a reaction to the idea of a single Europe. Austria's Heinz-Christian Strache, whose far right Freedom Party has risen to become the country's second- most popular in part through its anti-EU stance, registered a complaint earlier this month at the Strasbourg European Court for Human rights against Austria's participation in Greece's bailout. The party "will leave no stone unturned to prevent Austria's participation in this game of fortune or to reverse it," he said. "Every Austrian is hurt through the transfer of Austrian tax money on financially barren states and in particular on the lenders behind them." (AP Photo/dapd, Hans Punz, File)
