ATHENS, Greece (AP) — The head of Greece's socialist PASOK party, which is projected to come in third in Sunday's critical election, has proposed that Greece form a unity government of four top parties that includes the anti-bailout radical left.
Official projections show the conservative New Democracy party as coming in first with about 129 of Parliament's 300 seats, ahead of the anti-bailout radical left Syriza party.
New Democracy and PASOK could form a pro-bailout coalition.
But PASOK's Evangelos Venizelos, who spent months as finance minister, suggested that the usual procedure of each party seeking coalition partners be waived. He said a government must be formed quickly and suggested one between New Democracy, Syriza, PASOK and the small Democratic Left.
