The Greek President, Karolos Papoulias called on political leaders to gather in a meeting today, after they the didn't found common grounds on assigning a new Prime Minister; however, the nation needs to end the political instability as soon as possible and provide a written acceptance for the second bailout deal in order to qualify the country for the sixth tranche of last year's aid package.

Papandreou met the president yesterday along with the opposition New Democracy and LAOS parties' leaders, Antonis Samaras and George Karatzaferis, after criticism grew over the political conflict in Greece, where both parties preferred the parliament speaker, Filippos Petsalnikos to be the next premier rather than the former European Central Bank vice president, Lucas Papademos, according to To Vima newspaper.

Papandreou didn't announce the new leader of the Greek Parliament nor formally resigned.
