Greek Prime Minister to Resign in Bid to Uphold Bailout Deal

Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras plans to hand in his resignation Thursday evening to clear the way for early national elections, according to two government officials, in a gamble aimed at bolstering his power and ability to implement Greece's bailout deal.

Mr. Tsipras intends to tell Greece's head of state, President Prokopis Pavlopoulos, that he can no longer continue as premier because of the lack of a stable governing majority in parliament, said the officials, who took part in the government's deliberations about when to take the country to snap elections.

The premier will propose Sept. 20 as the date for new parliamentary elections, according to a government official.
