The 17-nation euro was lower against most of its 16 major counterparts with Greek Prime Minister Antonis Samaras facing obstacles from coalition partners as lawmakers are expected to vote this week on measures required to receive aid. Samaras pledged on Nov. 4 that the raft of wage and pension cuts in the latest austerity package will be the last and that Greek society won’t tolerate any more, according to comments made to lawmakers of his New Democracy party. The first parliamentary vote in Athens may come as early as Nov. 7. Negotiations between Greece and its troika of international creditors have sought to keep the country inside the European monetary union. In Athens, coalition leaders are squabbling over the terms of the latest package, while in other European capitals politicians are debating how to ease the country’s debt burden.
