The head of Greece's socialist party said Wednesday that the country has a new government, "ending nearly seven weeks of political uncertainty which threatened to plunge Europe deeper into a financial crisis with global repercussions." Details of the three-party coalition government are still being ironed out, and are expected to be finalized by the end of the day. The announcement is "expected to calm fears that a protracted political crisis in debt-struck Greece could have led to the country being forced out of the joint European currency."
