Greece's president is hosting critical power-sharing talks between the prime minister and the head of the main opposition party as leaders seek common ground on forming an interim government.
The political crisis in Athens has threatened the country's ability to avoid a catastrophic bankruptcy and retain its cherished eurozone membership.
Prime Minister George Papandreou has said he will step aside once an agreement is reached on an interim government whose main task will be to pass a new European debt deal and ensure Greece receives the next vital installment of bailout loans. Opposition leader Antonis Samaras had insisted Papandreou resign before negotiations began.
The meeting between Papandreou and Samaras is taking place Sunday.
