BBC NEWS | Europe | Greek PM reprieved by bribe vote

The Greek parliament has voted against indicting an MP from the governing party, in a corruption probe that could have triggered early elections.

Aristotle Pavlides, a former minister, was alleged to have solicited bribes in return for granting shipping contracts.

His opponents were five votes short of the 151 needed in Greece's 300-seat parliament to indict him. Not all his party colleagues supported him.

Mr Pavlides denies any wrongdoing and has refused to resign his seat.
