Papademos says Greek Party Leaders have backed him.

Ekathimerini reports that EX ECB Vice President and EU Placeman at the head of the Greek government has obtained the agreement of the three party leaders in Greece to his proposed next steps in Brussels tomorrow. Read here.

Reuters report, linked here, seems less sure of that outcome and shows the Finance Minister leaving for Brussels, rather than Papademos as indicated in the other report. Perhaps there is a time difference or the talks are not completely finalised.

Whatever the truth, and that will probably not be known for some considerable time, this certainly seems like being a momentous day for Greece and the death of democracy once again in Europe!
