Greece Seeks Better Terms in Bailout Agreement

Greece’s new coalition government has outlined a series of issues it aims to renegotiate in its international bailout agreement, seeking to repeal some taxes and cuts to benefits for those on low income.

The policy statement issued by the three-party coalition came as the country’s new Prime Minister Antonis Samaras successfully underwent eye surgery and his finance minister, Vassilis Rapanos, remained hospitalized after collapsing on Friday.

Samaras, whose conservative New Democracy party came first in June 17 elections but did not win enough votes to form a government on its own, heads a government that includes his party’s long-time socialist rivals, PASOK, and the small Democratic Left party.

The three parties agreed on a series of policies for their government, issued in a statement Saturday.
