Greeks urge president to form a new coalition

The Greek president is holding talks with the four main parties to try to form an emergency government to avoid new elections.

Last week votes were cast but no party won an overall majority.

Some fear that if new elections have to be held, parties that oppose austerity measures - which are a condition of Greece's bailout deal - might do well again.

Voters in Athens talk about their fears of a political stand-off.
