Greece's two major political parties, who have earlier agreed to set up a coalition government, announced that early elections could be tentatively scheduled for February 19, 2012, the Greek finance ministry said.

The finance ministry conducts coalition consultations on behalf of the ruling center-left PASOK party.

Prime Minister George Papandreou and opposition leader Antonis Samaras met late on Sunday for talks on the future coalition government. They announced in a statement early on Monday that George Papandreou would resign as Greek premier and "immediate" elections will be held.
