Greece calls new elections after coalition talks fail

ATHENS, May 15 (Reuters) - Greece will hold new elections after political leaders failed to find agreement on a coalition government on Tuesday, a spokesman for the Greek president said.

A caretaker government to lead the country to fresh polls will be appointed on Wednesday, the presidency spokesman said after party leaders held a final round of talks.

“We’re heading to elections,” the spokesman told reporters.
