Greece's leader of the Left Coalition party Alexis Tsipras has ruled out entering a coalition with the conservative New Democracy party, and said he would try to form a government with other leftist parties.
Speaking after talks with New Democracy leader Antonis Samaris, Tsipras said:
– Greece's leader of the Left Coalition party Alexis Tsipras
"There cannot be a government of national salvation since the signature of Mr. Samaras (on the bailout deal) did not bring salvation but caused tragedy. We're not going to let in through the window what the Greek people kicked out the door."
