5:02 pm
marathon talks that paved the way for a third greek bail out ordinary narrowly the huge majority means legislation is easily passed but not this time. friday was angela merkel's 6 birthday, but publicly her thoughts were on the present and the potential for a rebellion of her own supporters. she sawed to soothe the fears of those who did not want more money to go to greece. >> i never had many doubts or worries that this path will be successful and that greece will have the strength to pursue this part. but one thing is my strong conviction. we need the responsibility to at least try this. >> but there is a vocal minority
5:03 pm
minority. they say this vote is an affront to public opinion in greece. chief among the opponents is the left-wing party. he said that the proposal would beet end of democracy in greece. the greek government needs permission of the european commission, the imf and the ecb only for the public discussion and only after this can they discuss it. then they need another permission to bring it to full parliament for the vote. that's the parliamentary democracy that you have organized. >> but in wider society there is growing unease about germany's continuing financial commitment to greece. three quarters of germans do not trust the current government in athens. >> i feel sorry for the greeks

5:06 pm
>> yes, what the imf is saying is important for germany because they want the imf to be on board. they only trust the imf as an independent institution able to deliver analysis that's independent. they don't trust the european commission can do that. for them its crucial the imf is on board. but clearly the main question is how do they square that the imf is call forgive massive debt relief. >> in >> every politician has to worry about that but the rest of europe is looking to germany for leadership, as the leader of the eurozone and the e.u. do you think that germany is
