/Ruling PASOK MP from Larissa, Ektoras Nassiokas, on Thursday announced that he will tender his resignation from the PASOK parliamentary group later in the day.

He is the second ruling party MP to resign on Thursday, and the third in less than 48 hours.

Briefing parliament on his intention, Nassiokas said that "this is the least I can do to reverse today's condition of impasse, for the salvation of the country".

Nassiokas did not express intentions of declaring himself an Independent.ana-mpa

Earlier, ruling PASOK MP George Floridis tendered his resignation, the second ruling party MP to resign in the space of two days, following George Lianis on Tuesday afternoon.

Floridis resigned from his MP post, but did not declare himself an Independent, thus in effect "returning" the seat to PASOK.

Floridis, MP from Kilkis prefecture, notified parliament of his resignation in a two-page letter.ana-mpa

Lianis, who was elected in Florina prefecture, in a letter to prime minister George Papandreou released to the press on Tuesday, resigned from the PASOK parliamentary group and declared himself an Independent, in disagreement over the government's economic policy.

Floridis, a former public order minister (2003-2004) and former deputy minister of finance (2001-2003), culture (sport portfolio, 2000-2001), and interior and public administration (1998-2000), said in his letter of resignation that he honors the Panhellenic Socialist Movement (PASOK) and its struggles, "but at this marginal time for the country, the national duty was defeated by the leader-oriented and partisan interest".
