Greek government talks stalled
The Greek opposition leader Vangelis Meimarakis has failed to make a coalition government during the weekend's negotiations.

Meimarakis, who leads the conservative party New Democracy, on Thursday was given an assignment from President Prokopis Pavlopoulos to try to form a new government after Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras submitted his resignation.

Meimarakis got three days to form a new government. But few hours before the deadline expired on Monday night, there was minimal progress in negotiations.

According to the Greek constitution, all parties in the sitting parliament must attempt to form a new government before new elections. Each party gets a deadline of three days to form a government.

Unless Meimarakis manage it within the time limit, the second largest party in the National Assembly receive the opportunity.

Tsipras himself, who now heads the country with a caretaker government, wants new elections.
