Greece to form new government, reports say
It took a while, but Greece will soon have a new government.
Antonis Samaras, whose conservative New Democracy party won Sunday’s elections, will be sworn in as prime minister on Wednesday, Reuters reports.
New Democracy, the PASOK party and the Democratic Left party have agreed to form the new, pro-bailout coalition, which is expected to be officially set later Wednesday after Samaras meets with President Karolos Papoulias.
Greece has not had an elected government in 223 days, CNN points out.
“Greece has a government,” PASOK leader Evangelos Venizelos said. “That is the message that we need to send abroad.”
