The End of Papandreou Greek Prime Minister Quits Ahead of New Coalition

Greek Prime Minister Giorgios Papandreou is to quit as part of a cross-party agreement to form a broad coalition in Athens. New elections are scheduled for February, but prior to that, the new government is to approve the latest EU bailout package for Greece. Whether it can calm the situation in the country remains doubtful.
