ATHENS (Reuters) - Greece's opposition New Democracy party plans to submit a motion of no confidence against Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras in parliament over a deal on neighbouring Macedonia's name, a party source told Reuters.

New Democracy would wait until the conclusion of a debate on bailout reforms which was scheduled to wrap up on Thursday before submitting the motion, the source said.

Athens and Skopje reached a historic accord on Tuesday agreeing to call the former Yugoslav nation the "Republic of Northern Macedonia," settling nearly three decades of disagreement over its name.
