A junior partner in Greece's three-party governing coalition kicked two of its lawmakers out of its parliamentary group Monday, reducing the troubled government's majority, as a result of a scandal over a list of Greeks with Swiss bank accounts.

The Democratic Left party expelled Odysseas Voudouris and Paris Moutsinas for saying they would support the opposition Syriza party's proposal to impeach former finance minister Evangelos Venizelos, who heads the coalition's Socialist party, over alleged mishandling of the list.
