The head of Greece's socialist PASOK party says the country needs to form a government fast, and that negotiations for a coalition must be completed by the end of Tuesday.

Evangelos Venizelos, a former finance minister, said Monday that the "broadest possible" consensus must be found between the parties that won parliamentary seats in Sunday's election.

The conservative New Democracy party won Sunday's ballot, but without enough votes to form a government on its own. PASOK came third. Both have said they will stick to Greece's international bailout commitments, although they want to renegotiate some of the harsh austerity terms taken in return for the international rescue loans.
