Greek parties to finalise coalition

Representatives from three Greek political parties involved in coalition talks will hold a meeting shortly to discuss policy issues and the make-up of a cabinet in a new government, two party officials told Reuters on Tuesday.

“We're heading to a meeting now to discuss the programme and the possible faces in the new government,” an official from one of the three parties said.
