(Reuters) - A string of parliamentary resignations threw Greek Prime Minister George Papandreou's plan to reshuffle his cabinet and seek support for a crucial austerity package into disarray on Thursday.

So the resigned PASOK MPs will be replaced by other PASOK members... that's no melting majority then, but PASOK MPs freeing themselves from the responsibility.

Yep, up til now that's what is happening... we will see what happens in the end, the situation is still fluid. Papandreou tried to rally in his parliamentary group tonight, but it's still unclear what he aims to achieve...
