Lucas Papademos announced as new Greek prime minister‎

FORMER European Central Bank vice-president Lucas Papademos is to be Greece’s new prime minister.

The former European Central Bank vice-president Mr Papademos set a series of demands that prevented agreement between the two main parties on Monday.


State television channel NET said Papademos wanted to extend the new government’s term to beyond February 19, a date tentatively set for a fresh round of elections, and appoint opposition conservatives to the new cabinet.
