Tsipras said his Syriza party will form a coalition government with the nationalist Independent Greeks (ANEL) party. ANEL leader Panos Kammenos said he would meet Mr Tsipras later. However, the Syriza-ANEL coalition is likely to have a narrower majority, with 155 members in the 300-seat parliament, compared to 162 following the January election.
