Greece's parliament is to vote Sunday on draft austerity measures demanded by the European Union in exchange for a new bailout loan. The Greek Cabinet approved a draft of the austerity bill late Friday. If passed, it will authorize Prime Minister Lucas Papademos to agree to additional cuts required to secure a $172-billion bailout loan and head off bankruptcy. Greek leaders are issuing new pleas - and warnings - ahead of Sunday's crucial vote. In a televised address on Saturday, Prime Minister Papademos defended the thousands of job cuts, a drop in the minimum wage and other austerity measures that would earn the country the second bailout loan.
