BERLIN, GERMANY - SEPTEMBER 29: German Chancellor Angela Merkel (L) chats with a colleague as a Bundestag aide carries a ballot box away shortly after Bundestag members voted on an increase in funding for the European Financial Stability Facility (EFSF) on September 29, 2011 in Berlin, Germany. Many analysts see the increase as crucial for safeguarding the future stability of the Euro in the face of the current debt crisis in Greece. Merkel is pressing for the increase, and though opposition parties have pledged to support the bill, up to 19 dissenters within the ranks of her own coalition might vote against it.
