Greece’s caretaker Prime Minister Panagiotis Pikrammenos submitted his resignation to President Karolos Papoulias after the elections ended in a clear winner. However Papoulias did not accept Pikrammenos’s resignation and asked him to stay in office until a new government is formed.

“I cannot accept it” Papoulias told Pikrammenos in front of dozens of reporters and cameras.

Panagiotis Pikrammenos was appointed Greece’s caretaker Prime Minister with the goal to lead the country to repeat elections after political leaders failed to form a coalition government after May 6 elections.
