Greek PM Papandreou faces unity challenge over bailout

The Greek Prime Minister, George Papandreou has held talks with the country's president about forming a new coalition government.

He warned that efforts to secure a financial bail-out for the country could be in trouble unless a political consensus is found.

He survived a no-confidence vote in parliament on Friday after promising to bring in a power-sharing administration.

The main opposition party has said it will not work with Mr Papandreou and has called for snap elections.

Matthew Price reports.
