ATHENS, Greece (AP) Greece is heading to early general elections after parliament failed to elect a new president for the country in a third and final round of voting on Monday.
The coalition government's candidate for the post, former European commissioner Stavros Dimas, fell short of the 180 votes of parliament's 300 seats needed to win.
The government now has 10 days to dissolve parliament and declare early elections in a move that some fear could endanger the debt-ridden country's international bailout.
