Greece's chief negotiator in aid talks with international creditors, Euclid Tsakalotos, is the government's top candidate to become finance minister following the resignation on Monday of Yanis Varoufakis, a senior government official said.

Varoufakis' successor is due to be named after a meeting of political leaders that got under way at 10 a.m.
