(Berlin) -- The German parliament is set to vote today on a new Greek bailout package.
The parliament is expected to pass the 130-billion-euro rescue package.
But German Chancellor Angela Merkel is expected to face an uphill battle convincing her own party to vote in favor of the bailout.
At least a dozen members of the chancellor's center-right coalition are vowing to reject the package.
Opposition parties the Social Democrats and Greens have said they will support the package.
Meanwhile, support among Germans for a Greek bailout plan appears to be waning.
A new poll published in German newspaper "Bild am Sonntag" shows 62-percent of Germans are against the bailout, while 33-percent support it.
