ATHENS, June 20
ATHENS, June 20 (Reuters) - Greek conservative leader Antonis Samaras told President Karolos Papoulias on Wednesday he had the numbers to form a stable, long term government with centre-left parties following his victory in Sunday's general election.
"Our efforts have yielded a parliamentary majority to form a durable government," Samaras, head of the centre-right New Democracy party, told the head of state following talks with his traditional rivals, the Socialist PASOK party and the smaller Democratic Left.
