ATHENS (Reuters) - Greek Prime Minister Antonis Samaras will meet his coalition partners on Monday, his office said on Thursday, in a bid to find a way a out of a growing political crisis over the sudden closure of state broadcaster ERT.

The meeting - which Samaras's junior coalition partners had demanded along with a repeal of the decision to close ERT - will take place at 11 am ET, his office said.

Greek workers staged a nationwide strike on Thursday to protest the closure as backlash against the decision grows.
