No agreement on ecumenical gov’t reached, talks to continue Monday

No agreement has been brokered until now toward the formation of an ecumenical government, Democratic Left party leader Fotis Kouvelis said late Sunday following talks with Greek President Karolos Papoulias.

?Democratic Left did all that it could for a solution that would reflect the will of the people to disengage [the country] from the terms of the memorandum and, at the same time, support a policy that will keep the country in the eurozone,? he said.

?We have demonstrated our responsibility toward society in the most sincere manner. Let everyone live up to their own responsibilities,» he added.

The Greek president is scheduled to meet again with Kouvelis, New Democracy leader Antonis Samaras, and PASOK chief Evangelos Venizelos, on Monday at 7.30 p.m.
