Greece's Tsipras rules out forming national unity govt

Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras, seen in Athens on August 25, 2015, remains popular, although in the absence of recent opinion polls it is difficult to know whether he could win an absolute majority in the forthcoming pollOutgoing Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras on Wednesday ruled out forming a national unity government should he fail to win a outright majority in snap elections triggered after he resigned last week. Tsipras, who called for a fresh vote after suffering a major rebellion in his hard-left Syriza party over Greece’s huge new international bailout, dismissed suggestions he could work with the conservative opposition New Democracy, the Pasok socialists or the centre-right Potami if the poll results were inconclusive. “I will not become a prime minister who cooperates with New Democracy, Pasok or Potami,” Tsipras said in an interview with the Alpha TV channel, his first since resigning last Thursday.
