Greece names caretaker cabinet

  • A cabinet of professors and diplomats has been sworn in in Greece to guide the troubled eurozone state into fresh elections on June 17.

    The 300 MPs were elected on May 6 and are taking their seats for a single day.

    Earlier this month, voters punished the two mainstream parties that agreed to cuts required under international bailouts.

    Opinion polls suggest Syriza, a leftist bloc opposed to the cuts, will win the biggest share of parliamentary seats in next month’s elections.
