ATHENS, Greece (AP) - Greece's former finance minister and Socialist party leader Evangelos Venizelos, whose party has received a drubbing in parliamentary elections, has called for a broad coalition government of pro-European parties.
Projected results from Sunday's elections showed Venizelos' PASOK party plunging to third place with 13.6 percent and 42 seats in the 300-member parliament. The conservative New Democracy was projected in the lead with 19.18 percent and 109 seats, far below the amount needed to form a government. The margin of error was 0.5 percentage point.
Venizelos said the results ruled out a two-party coalition with New Democracy.
